Life's A Beach 🏖



I miss the old days at the beach in Evanston, IL! My family and friends had Friday night sings at the beach in Winnetka and afternoon strolls in Evanston. 🏖

Morning cup of Joe ☕️ Usually on the Go!


WHO has time for a quiet cup of coffee anymore? 
It seems as if everyone is always "on the go!" I remember a time when the world traveled a little bit slower and people were able to sip a hot coffee at home before getting out into the jungle of life. My go-to tumbler for my morning cup of joe sports some fabulous lashes. Below are a few pics for unicorn fans too. All can be found in my shop: Amazon.com/shop/rikkiragland

🐾 Hangin' with My Rescue Hunter Wellington 🐶 🚌🛑


Hangin’ with Hunter Wellington! Yesterday was the last day to pick the kid up from the bus stop. This 4-legged one has been my bus stop buddy for several years as we wait in the hot sun or the rain to greet my son & the bus driver 🚌.
We have the best rescue 🐶 a family could ask for. He certainly leaves his 🐾 all over our ❤️ ❤️. His personality is so bright I have to wear shades😎.
A fave of mine are mirrored aviators. Turn them around to check your 💄 😊. Also shining brightly is my Star ✡️ necklace. Both can be found at terrific prices in my Amazon store: amazon.com/shop/rikkiragland

Hockey 🏒 Mom

The parents played Dash’s hockey team today! We tied 8-8. I am skating in the green Dallas Stars jersey with the puck. There is a reason why moms don’t try to start a hockey “career” at almost 50 yrs old! 😳

Today's event was brought to you by Advil, Tylenol, Aleve & Tiger Balm.

Faith, Race & Politics in America

I feel that we should bring back a show that I hosted in Chicago for PBS several years ago.
"Faith, Race & Politics" to openly address the issues in our country.
