Where’s Mer?

For the remainder of the week, you can find her right here on Come to Coco. Whenever I need a good book recommendation, a recipe, an interesting bottle of vino, new bedding or face cream…Mer is my go-to gal pal. Last November, Meryl wrote a guest post titled, Winter Skin Regimen and ever since I’ve received many requests to have her post more. So all you Meryl lovers, rejoice! I can’t wait to share all she has in store.

Happy, Happy New Year!! Xx

I’ve learned



I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:
a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life’.

I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands;
you need to be able to throw some things back.

I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart,
I usually make the right decision.

I’ve learned that even when I have pains,
I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a f riendly pat on the back.

I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

A Touching Testimony

Have you seen this video of Seth Rogen testifying in front of the Senate about Alzheimer’s disease? He kills it. Bravo to Mr. Rogen for raising awareness about a disease that not only affects my family but over 5 million other Americans.
