I'm a nationally published lifestyles journalist and photographer. I focus on the magic of ordinary moments -- the moments we overlook as we rush through our busy days. I collect quotes that inspire me, and pair them here daily with my photos. As a nod to my years of writing Sunday newspaper columns, I also post essays and reviews on weekends. You're welcome to share my posts with friends. Social media sharing buttons are included in the beige area under each post. ~Cindy La Ferle

At the North American International Auto Show 2018
Getting fancy is a rare opportunity. On Friday night, our family attended the black-tie Charity Preview for the North American International Auto Show. Our car-loving son and his wife thought it would be fun for all of us to get dressed up for an evening at one of the Motor City's biggest events. (In this photo, from left: Doug, me, Nate, Andrea, and Andrea's mom, Matilda.) We all had a wonderful time, starting with champagne and appetizers at Matilda's house, then admiring scores of new cars and trucks at Cobo Center.
