Letter From the Editor: Ordinary Beauty

One of the joys of summer, for me, is being on the beach more.  While I do go when the weather is cooler, the summer is always more fun. Almost every morning I leave my house and head down to get some exercise and enjoy the peace and beauty of the ocean.  This morning I […]

Letter From the Editor: Memorable People

Hilda is the mother of one of my oldest friends. She’s 93 and lives with Kathy and her family – and she has Alzheimer’s. When I was in my early 20s, Hilda was a petite, pretty, well-dressed woman with the sweetest smile that effectively disguised the no nonsense strength underneath.  Honestly, I was a little […]

Letter From the Editor: Showers and Succulents

While I was doing a big cleanup in my front yard last weekend, I realized that my little patch of ground has changed. For all the years I’ve lived there, it’s been very shady with only a few hours of morning sun to keep the hydrangeas and impatiens happy. I never got to plant zinnias […]

Those of you who have been reading Sasee for a few years know how much I love my mother-in-law, Faye.  All of her sons and daughters in law feel the same way; Faye has a way of making everyone who knows her feel special. A few Sundays ago, I drove to Summerville for a visit […]

Letter From the Editor

I love home, always have. There really is no place I would rather be most of the time. Just saying the word brings me peace. The phrase, “introverted extrovert” describes me perfectly – one who loves people and enjoys company, but needs a lot of alone time to thrive.  Sitting on my screened porch in […]

After years of daily running, several minor, yet painful, injuries slowed me down. And then, a minor car accident last spring ground me completely to a halt. Except for my weekly yoga class and the occasional beach walk, I wasn’t exercising at all. And I could tell. Everything hurt. My energy level dropped along with […]

When my children were growing up, I tried to make Christmas picture perfect. I (over) decorated the tree and the house, baked tons of goodies, scheduled family nights watching Christmas movies and specials. We did every single holiday activity I could find to do. It was mostly fun, but it was also exhausting. And, it […]

Like most of you, reading is, and always has been, one of my greatest joys. I can remember being 8 or 9 years old and getting so excited when the library would get a new Pippi Longstocking book – I’d take the book, climb my favorite tree and spend the afternoon in another world – […]

Both of my children love music, led by their music-loving mother I’m sure. My daughter says she can remember hearing the sledge hammer beat of Led Zeppelin from her crib – that was my favorite house-cleaning music at the time. Our home had an eclectic playlist – along with Robert Plant’s soprano screams, Shawn grew […]

Growing up, I had a beautiful print of flying pelicans in my room and, still, so many years later, I can close my eyes and see those birds, instantly recalling the way this small piece of art made me feel. I never talked to my mother about how much that little print meant to me, […]
