The More You Own, The More It Owns You
December 02, 2014
By: KellyE 

I spent a good part of my weekend in our second bedroom sorting, tossing, organizing and wishing I had done it a long time ago. Plain and simple.... "The more you own, the more it owns you". Through the years, I have streamlined what I find to be important. I have boxes of the kids school treasures,...

By: KellyE 

So many years had past since I was able to spend time with Abbie and I was looking very forward to her visit!

I'm not sure when I first thought of it, but for quite some time now, I've had a desire to have a Soup Tasting Party!

By: KellyE 

For many school age kids, this week is Spring Break, which means only one thing... fun times with friends! To me as a kid/teen, it meant midweek sleepovers, afternoon movies and maybe a trip to the local mall. I remember during my junior year in high school, I was able to spend the week with a group...

Facebook Brings High School Friends Together For Lunch and Laughter
February 06, 2014
By: KellyE 

Looking back on my high school days, in the mid 70's, I remember many close friends whom I had lost contact with through the years. After moving to Oregon from California in 1981, and making very few trips back to California, I only stayed in touch with a handful of girls from high school and even s...

New Year's Eve in Pasadena Remembered
January 01, 2014
By: KellyE 

I was fortunate to have lived near Pasadena, California during my high school years which meant New Year's Eve was spent with little to no sleep on the streets of Pasadena. It was a time, back in the mid-late 70s, when parents felt comfortable letting their teenagers stay out all night and a city ...

When I made the decision to start a blog, using the "My Friends and I" name, it didn't take long to decide what (and more importantly), WHO my opening blog would be about. From day one of our journey called life, we meet new people, experience new things, move from one town to another, while buildin...
