Thank you Kristin Davis

  • Orphaned Baby Elephants
    So nice to see that the babies finally have a prominent name attached to their plight. Please click the link (above) to view a page from the orphanage and at the bottom of the page is a link to a wonderful video Kristin made at the orphanage.

From Dame Daphne Sheldrick:

  • “Every person that buys ivory has killed an elephant and its dependent young and has caused immeasurable sorrow and suffering to many others.” Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick MBE, MBS


  • ... from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned baby elephants are rescued.

Watercolors from the Nursery

  • Each month I receive a lovely watercolor depicting a scene from the nursery. We have printed many of them out and placed them in frames to decorate our home.


  • Sammy loved kittens, tutus & ballerinas. But mostly he loved us. He died a peaceful death as an old man and left us with broken hearts.

Our Old Man

  • Baby Bear died a peaceful death just before Christmas 2009. He was almost 17. Bear was a warrior. A brilliant feline. A blessing to our lives.

Hi Amy... oooh, how I wish I would have been there! The mother~daughter team is adorable and I too love their hair! Haley looks so pretty and I also love the new photo of the two of you on your sidebar! Beautiful ladies! Your new pink coat is perfect! I'm glad you all behaved so Desi will let you have another one... oooh, maybe I could make it to the next one! The clothes are fabulous!...Okay, I am off to look at the photos in your photo album on your sidebar... love to you... xoxo Julie Marie


Now that looks like you all had some serious F.U.N. And like Julie Marie, I wish I could have been there. It would be so nice to be able to zap myself there like then do in Star Trek. Oh well. I will just live through the pictures! I especially LOVE that pink coat! I know it will look lovely on you Amy!

Love from the state of Tennessee and Lulu (a.k.a. Donna)


Hi Amy,

You all clearly had a ball and don't we all love it when our husbands indulge our whims a bit here and there. Now I'm going to check out that CAbi Fashion Show album!

Amy Arnaz

Thank you Jennifer, Donna & Julie Marie~
It's surely flamboyant to have a fashion show "just for fun" when there is so much stress & suffering everywhere but it certainly feels good to be with the girls and forget about "issues" for a few hours. I love my girlfriends and the person who coined the phrase "why pay for a therapist when you have girlfriends" was right on. I also LOVE my blog girlfriends.... you! xoxo Amy

Privet and Holly

Amy, that sounds
like a night of
SUCH fun!!! And
that coat Haley is
holding....I love
it! I haven't had
an invite to a Cabi
show in ages and I

out. Off to look at
your fashion show pics,
xx Suzanne

What a fun event and so glad it was where it was, so much fun I am sure!!I would lvoe to attend one --well maybe in the spring!!
I love that coat and so glad you got one!!I will go check it out!!Of course we don't wear coats that much here!!!
But I can look around at all the pretty things!!Your darling Haley is so Beautiful and she modeled like a PRO!!

Amy Arnaz

Thank you Jamie ~ Haley is the love of my life. She had her problems (havent we all?*!!!) but in hindsight I can see how her love of Classical Music Ballet pulled her thru even her most difficult times. Theres something magical about Right Music and the exquisiteness of Ballet that provide stability and beauty. If I was First Lady I would immediately start a campaign to re-introduce Music programs into every school in America to give children an insight into a world that feeds the Soul. My 2nd campaign would be to abolish Rap and Acid Rock which only poison our children. A long answer to your sweet post I know, but I am so proud of Haley for her dedication to Ballet and for the lovely Ballerina she is today. And shes a cute model too! Thank you ~Amy


Great pictures Amy!! Love that PINK coat too! How come you didn't model anything or did I just miss you in the pictures somewhere? Linda

Amy Arnaz

Hi Linda~

I didnt model because I wanted to sit in the front row and ENJOYmyself for a change! And I did :) xoxo Amy

  • Along with pink roses, kittens and God's abundance, ballerinas are certainly one of the most beautiful gifts our eyes can behold. ~ Amy Arnaz

Long skirts

My little mother Libby

  • Hi Mom! I hope you have somehow figured out how to read my blog. I have a new, bionic knee that should last till I'm 80. Wish you were here so we could share everything with you. Miss you lots.... Wish you would have lived longer so you could see your beautiful granddaughters all grown up.
