About Stacy

Hi, my name is Stacy, and I’m so glad you’re here because that means you have an interest in Great Escapes!

We all have a means of obtaining freedom from worry, care, or unpleasantness. My favorite escapes are dancing, reading an amazing love story, watching a funny movie, cooking delicious meals, and traveling. I enjoy making my home warm and comfortable for my family and guests! And I pour my heart and soul into celebrating life with memorable parties!

I also have so much fun taking pictures of my family during their escapes! I encourage you to try something new each day: Listen to a new song, read a new book, watch a new movie, cook a new recipe, or travel to a new city. We are not guaranteed tomorrow so start today!

I cut a watermelon in half, used a melon baller on the watermelon, and added fresh fruit (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries) to half of the watermelon balls that were scooped out.  I cut off about an 1/8 of an inch on the bottom so that the bowl would be sturdy.  You can easily make a fun design on the top by cutting a “V” shape continuously.  And then fill the watermelon with the fresh fruit combination!  I used the rest of the watermelon for a smoothie.  This was a hit at a summer play date!
