November {10}

For {ten} fantastic years Stylish Heath has been my creative venue for art, travel and delicious food. I remember walking through the neighborhood one crisp November evening in 2012 listening to my autumn playlist, and while meandering the streets various topics and images came to mind on how to begin the blog. But all I could focus on in that chilly night air were spring flowers. I had photographed peonies, irises, daffodils, and tulips earlier that year and wanted to begin the first post with one of these images even though Thanksgiving was around the corner.

So, to celebrate 10 years at Heath I’ve chosen a few family photos taken last week in Pittsburgh showing the fun and frivolity we have whenever we’re together. This is what blogging is all about sharing, exchanging ideas and learning from those enjoy life!!!

Family in Pittsburgh over the weekend enjoying purchasing apples on The Strip and checking out the Andy Warhol museum.

My adorable niece Aria Grace who is now five months old was christened this weekend surrounded by family wearing a beautiful lace dress from Burono, Italy {Venice}. Aria enjoys life, she has found her legs and hands, and truly enjoys her new found treasures!!!

The Andy Warhol museum was a phenomenal place to visit, seeing various inspirational works and the archives of the artist. 1] Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol 2] Portrait of Grace Jones 3] Heads {After Picasso}, 1985, 4] Photograph of Iman and Tina Chow.

I’m so appreciative of the support and the love of community we’ve created over the years, and am so looking forward to the next ten!!!

Stay stylish,

Number Eight

NOVEMBER 10, 2020

Today marks the 8th anniversary of my blog and I consider November 10th to be one of my favorite days of the year. This blog encapsulates everything I love, and lately memories have been popping up on my phone from a trip to Cabos San Lucas summer before last.

It was a time of absolute luxury, and when viewing these photos it’s incredible to see how far removed we are from dealing with a pandemic. But, am thrilled to see on the news this evening that a possible vaccine may be forthcoming with a 90% efficacy rate to control this virus!!!

When I started this blog there were so many of you who were helpful and guiding to a new member at WordPress. It always helps to keep perspective on how things have changed over the years so; here are a few “memory photos” of travels for Stylish Heath over the years!!!!

Thank you for your support – I’m so appreciative of the community this space has created!!!



Today is the anniversary of my blog, which occurs at this wondrous time of year, the holidays! It began seven years ago while drafting notes and sketches for seasonal recipes and travel tips. I have always enjoyed reviewing art and wanted to include this topic as well. Looking back on previous post is always great fun and I have selected a few favorites to share.

Thank you so much for your support and sharing your creative ideas!!!
