About Me

My photo

Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. “He was always behind me, rallying me on with my writing. I would always see him with a book in hand. He gave me a great appreciation for the written word, and the power and responsibility that writers have to shape those who read their words. He also taught me to respect nature and to value the beauty within it; my reflections on my environment are just an extension of this.” Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.

5 Things That Make Me Happy...

5 Things that make me happy...

Lazy saturday morning moments.
Childrens' laughter.
Baked Brie with cranberry hazelnut crackers, good friends, and great conversation.
Dark chocolate, candle lit bubble baths and lazy Jazz (Yes that is to be enjoyed all together).
Sunsets over sand swept beach slopes.


  1. Hmm 5 things..Wow that's tough to narrow down but I'll try:
    1-A warm baguette and brie cheese.
    2-That song from yesterday tied to a beautiful memory.
    3-Reading words of a fine poet.
    4-The way ocean waves feel when they break on my shoulders.
    5-The ability to live free and sane.

    So let us enjoy!!!

  2. Wow Tracie, you should join us at the beach in the summers. It would fulfill the 5 things that make you happy on a daily basis.

  3. Let us enjoy indeed Lynne.. I always said that you and I sitting out at a quaint bistro with two glasses of red wine and our stories would make for a fine time! :)

  4. Debbie...I love the beach. I live not five minutes from the sea and froth, and it is a big part of my life. I moved from it once and had to move back, it was almost as though I felt lonesome for an old friend...

    Thanks for coming by!
