Hello! I wrote this newsletter on the long car ride from San Diego back to San Francisco yesterday. Howard, my sister, and I just had a much needed, mini three-day vacation on the charming Coronado island off the coast of San Diego. It was a really good way to refresh while still being careful and avoiding any crowded places.
I’m Excited To Tell You About Seven Good Things!
Coronado Island, San Diego
Loews Coronado Hotel
We stayed at the Loews, which is walking distance to the beach, and dogs are accepted. We hung out at the pool (socially distanced) and enjoyed good Mexican food at the pool restaurant. The weather was perfect.
Hotel Del Coronado
Our son, Tommy came down from Los Angeles for one night and we had a drink at the iconic “Hotel Del.” Here we are with my sister, Teresa.
There are lots of cute homes on Coronado Island.

My cousin, Janice sent this photo and recipe for a Blackberry Smash. I want to make this!
Honey Garlic Glazed Salmon with Garlic, Asparagus, and Black Rice
My Fav Comfortable Cole Haan Sandals for 75% off
I could walk miles in these comfortable sandals and they are on major sale now!
So I just purchased another perforated pair for $29.97!
Easy Eye Makeup
Since we are wearing masks in public, I am mostly just wearing make-up on my eyes.
Concealer (brightens all-around your eyes) • Revlon Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil Stays on all day and at $6.99 the price isn’t bad! • Benefit Bad Girl Bang Mascara (I buy the mini version and use about one per month). This really lengthens and fills in my lashes.
And those are Seven Favorite Things!
I have to say that I was a bit on edge when I was at my mom’s house. It was hard to not be able to hug her…and Howard and I wore masks around her.
On Thursday, we have a really delicious progressive menu for a cook-out with some of my fav bloggers. Summer dishes to try next weekend.
