Welcome to Suzi's World. I'm Suzi. I live on an Island... I'm a song writer, poet, and story teller; a music lover and movie critic...I try to eat healthy and exercise, but I also have a passion for good food, along with fine wine and spirits. Take a tour of my world, enjoy and visit often!
The World According To Suzi is here for me to share my songs, poems and stories. I'll also be sharing food and drink recipes, links and calendars of live music and other happenings in and around the Florida Keys, along with reviews on local restaurants, and tips on things to do. In Suzi's World there is always music, so I'll also be sharing play lists and my recommendations on music-new and old. So, please take a look around, click the links, leave a comment and let me know what you think, share your thoughts and give me a glimpse into your world!
The big news in Suzi's World right now is DIVA Fest!
Each year the women gathered...
...to renew their spirits
...nourish their souls
...and earn their laugh lines
In 2004, a couple of women asked a couple more women to join them for a week at the beach. The place was Dauphin Island, Alabama. The only rule was women only (specially selected amazing women.) No men, no kids, no pets.
That year there were 12 of us. And so, the Dauphin Island Vacation Alliance was formed and we became the DIVA's!
As we near the end of our 12th DIVA Fest, currently there are 13 of us on Dauphin Island. Today, the oldest DIVA is 77 and the youngest is 33. Yeah, back in '04, that youngest 37 year old DIVA was ME!
We lay in the sun, walk on the beach, listen to music, dance, drink, eat and laugh. We laugh a LOT!
Just this morning, I woke up with sore ab muscles from laughing so much last night. But, mostly, we enjoy and celebrate our friendship and love.
It's an amazing week with the most fabulous women I know.
Bed full of DIVA's
And, DIVA Fest would not be complete without singing along to the DIVA anthem:
