So I write this as my two little ones are settled downstairs watching Blues Clues and playing – well when my oldest isn’t yanking her toys from her little sister’s hands! Let’s be honest, if they weren’t watching TV, I wouldn’t be up here in the loft getting some work done.

But is Maggie at the age to really "get" Halloween? She'll be two in two weeks. (Yikes!) I can't decide if I should play along or just wait until next year. Last year, I dressed Mags in her NFL Jaguars cheerleader outfit.…Continue
When it comes to holidays and giving gifts to your co-workers, sometimes that can become a bit uncomfortable if you don’t know much about your co-workers’ private lives. The last thing you want to do is give a lousy gift and become known as the “lousy gift giver” in your department.
Every day I have an opportunity to try again. To try to get it right. Make it happen. Pursue flawed perfections.
Every day I have a common knowledge of what I should do. And every night I go to bed wondering why I didn't DO it!
For instance. Last night my hubby put me to bed at 8:30. I was grateful and so happy and did doze off immediately. And then Katie, escaping from her room, came and crawled in bed with me. I knew I should have gotten up and taken her immediately back… Continue

I grew up making tinfoil dinners over the campfire quite a bit growing up. You can pretty much cut up and meat and vegetables (literally ANY vegetables and a ton of them) and wrap it in tinfoil bake in the over, grill, or fire and after about 30 minutes eat! No dishes, its… Continue

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
