Another gorgeous guest blogger with such an interesting life.
I enjoy reading all the guest blog postings and thank you all.Thank you Corey for introducing us to everyone.
It is so very kind of you always.

Beautiful guest blog. I loved reading each and every part. Thank you so very much for sharing your life.

Hi Linda, I have always wanted to go Marburger, sounds so amazing. When will it open again? Your are a lovely person inside and out. It's a great place to be when you say, this is me and I love and accept her. Thanks for sharing. Peace!

Your photos are gorgeous (that bucket of peonies!!!) You are such an interesting person -I love your philosophy and it's so gracious of you to teach others to follow their true selves! Thank you for sharing your insights!

Your clothes look so comfortable and pretty. And I love the photo of the dinner party with the strings of lights. Thanks for sharing a glimpse into your life!

Thank you for sharing your life with us all Linda. Pleased to meet you.

"What I do know is that it is a struggle to offer yourself to friends and family

as an authentic person.

You will meet disapproval, judgment, and conflict."

Oh Linda ... this is so true! And not only from others -- from oneself, too, as one wonders whether one's being "selfish" like they accuse you of, or "lazy," or ... all the things they think you are when you put your own desires and needs on the same level as those of others, and do what YOU choose to do rather than what THEY want you to do. Being authentic requires not only courage and stamina, but the willingness to stand alone, leaning only on one's own convictions, while being open enough to ask oneself if one's own eyes are really open and if it's possible that "they" are right and "I" am wrong. Self-doubt is a bugger to overcome when those around you are pointing accusing fingers. -Kate

Great post Linda. Been to Marburger sooooo many times, only 4 hours from me, probably wandered into your booth!!!! Love your travel pictures! My apres covid travel plans are growing by the day. Perhaps one day the Corey followers can meet at Marburger !!!!!

I enjoyed reading this and drinking in your photographs. The roses, the pantaloons and pink chairs. Your story. Many thanks.
