I have them. You betcha. And I'll share.

When Rathi asked me to contribute here, I kind of jumped for joy. You see... I write a lot. But mostly in my head. And to actually sit down and pour thoughts out onto a page when there is no deadline or subject matter, well, it doesn't happen much these days!

So I will come here and spill some Oh! Dear Giggles with you all, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to do so. Because, I have plenty of Oh! Dear Giggles in my days...

I have them when I walk my beloved Atlantic coast with my babies... dipping our toes into the breath stealing cold of the ocean.

I have them when my husband comes home from work at the end of the day, when my five year old hides in the coat closet with a hand made mask and jumps out when his daddy comes in the door shouting "BOO!" and actually scares the living daylights out of his old man!

I have them when it's quiet, and there's no one to stop me from feeling the joy of alone. Of peace. Of silence.

And I most certainly have Oh! Dear Giggles moments when a stranger compliments and asks about my single wave tattoo that wraps around my right wrist.

My Oh! Dear Giggles moments happen on a daily basis. When I can silently help someone, or see someone else helping another in a quiet way. A door held. A bit of litter picked up. A painted rock left for someone who needs to find a treasure.

And that is what this place right here is. A treasure. Thank you ladies for making this site, for bringing these moments, these feelings, these life lessons and treasures out in the open for us all to enjoy. Thank you for having me here!


  1. Corinne, you have such an amazing way with words and it always, always makes me feel the emotions that I continue to seek. I am so glad that you are with us.


  2. I love how you talk about the little things from your day, Corinne. It is so great to have you aboard!
