At the encouragement and prodding of my Facebook friends and followers, I ( a native born New Yorker of Italian descent) started a blog in October of 2014 to share my life’s “adventures” with a broader audience.

I’m a retired special ed. teacher and consultant, living in Northern Ca. with my loving (but wacky!) life partner and cats. I try to write at least once a week and keep my topics on the “lighter side”, but will (on occasion) write on more serious subjects.

I’m not very “tech savy”, so you’re not going be treated to any great videos or pretty visuals, but if you’re looking for a chuckle for the day, feel free to venture into “Lucie’s World” and by all means, leave a comment or two, if you’re so moved to do so. I can be reached at lifeinluciesshoes@gmail.com

May everyone who enters my world, leave it with a smile on your face and laughter in your heart…..

  1. Hi Lucie,

    Okay, so I KNOW you don’t participate in blogging awards… but I really really want to nominate you for the Liebster Award?! It is TOTALLY okay if you cannot participate in it, but it would be really cool if you could XD. I’m completely aware that you have said you don’t want to do these awards, and I understand why. So I hope this isn’t really annoying for you!! Tell me if I’m being irritating 🙂 But, should you change your mind at any point, I’ve nominated you for The Liebster Award. The details are here https://thisizapen.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/another-liebster-award/ . You don’t have to adhere strictly to the rules. If ya want, you can skip the bits that are boring/time-consuming. So if you don’t want to spend time linking to 11 other blogs, or answer all my questions, that’s cool. And if you don’t feel like thinking up 11 questions for your nominees, you can still do the Liebster award.

    Don’t feel bad if you don’t want to accept – it’s an open invitation!! I won’t be offended at all if you don’t feel like doing the Liebster thing. It’s optional.

    Once again, I’ll understand if you don’t want to accept, so DON’T FEEL BAD XD

    1. OMG! You are so, so sweet, Jamila! What a total honor! Total honor, ya know that! Sweetie, I am sooooo techno – illiterate, that just getting my blog posted every week is a herculean feat! And what, pray tell, is “XD”????? I’m having major problems trying to “follow people” that I’ve even signed up to follow! I tried getting assistance from WP once and it just frustrated me…. I’ll “consider” your sweet offer later this week, but I really don’t feel that I can accept something that I can’t “follow the rules for”, ya know??? Remember me???? A RETIRED TEACHER/ rule follower!

      Humongous HUGS!!!!!

      1. Hi Lucie!!

        Haha, yeah I find the WP dashboard confusing too… I sometimes forget where to find my drafts and I spend AGES going back and forth looking for them and I get really frustrated 🙂 And I do find the Liebster Award can be time consuming, so I can see why it wouldn’t be worth the effort! That is completely fine if you don’t feel like it, I understand why 🙂 Thank you for “considering” my offer and writing a really sweet comment/not getting pissed off with me… haha. BTW, “XD” if you look at it sideways, is meant to look like a smiling face. The “D” is supposed to be the (grinning) mouth. And the X, seen sideways looks a bit like two eyes >< I also didn't understand it; when a friend sent me an e-mail with it, I had to google what it meant. I am guessing you know that BTW stands for "by the way" XD

        Retired teacher – lol 🙂

        Humongous hugs to you too,

      2. Thanks, J! I learned something new!( XD) I do know “BTW”, but thank you for the head’s up, Sweet Pea! And Jamila I would NEVER (NEVER!) get “pissed off” with someone for wanting to “honor me”, Sweetie! You hafta do an awful lot to me to get me “pissed off”! (Like cut me off in traffic at a high speed!!!) I will say thank you, but no (at this time) for the honor, though. While it is true that I would like my “followers and readers” to increase, I want “sincere/true followers”, who actually enjoy my brand of silliness. Right now, I sincerely feel that I’m a “work in progress” and need a great deal of work. I think I have a “talent for silliness”, but not exactly a talent for “writing”, so until I hone my writing skills, I’ll just plug along and accept those few people who “stumble onto my site”…..But thank you, again, for such a sweet, thoughtful gesture of kindness! ❤ 🙂

    1. Oh my goodness….I am truly honored, Erica, that you feel that way….truly honored. I, unfortunately, do not participate in these “blog awards” and never felt that I’d be nominated for any, so have not figured out how to post on my blog that I don’t participate in these kinds of awards….I’m so technologically “challenged”, Sweetie, that getting my weekly post published every week without losing it in “some cloud” is a herculean effort on my part. Again, THANK YOU so much for your very kind gesture. I consider YOU among a select few other bloggers that follow me to be highly, highly talented, gifted writers! (That’s why I take the time to read you. I KNOW talent when I read it and I’m trying to learn from people like YOU!!!) I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart….I hope I haven’t offended you in any way….Anyway, MANY thanks!!!!! ❤ Lucie
