Over the years, people have questioned me on why I still celebrate my son's birthday even after he passed away. Not only is it rude, but it's incredibly insulting. Although I shouldn't have to explain myself, I feel that by doing so, I can really relate and help other parents that might feel upset and scared to celebrate their child's birthday and need encouragement.…Continue

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…Continue

Trying to plan a birthday party with 3 kids running around is rough. Today, I am sharing my planning methods that help me to be stress free and enjoy the planning process!
My daughter is turning 5 this December. I plan birthday parties months ahead of time because I get everything done without worrying about spending too much all at once, not finding certain decorations or anything I need at our local stores, making sure I order what I need with enough time to get here and send back…Continue

My birthday is this weekend. And I'm going to celebrate. All. Week. Long. (Maybe even longer...I haven't decided yet.)
When I was growing up, I didn't truly enjoy my birthdays. There was a bad incident with a clown on one birthday, and for the others, I was a bit shy and didn't like being the center of attention. My parents tried to have parties for me, but I didn't…Continue

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!…

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason. And though we often don't ever know the reason, sometimes, we get lucky enough to find out just why things happen the way that they do. I LOVE those little "aha" moments. They help to restore my faith and to reassure me that something greater IS actually in…Continue

I cannot be the only one…whose weeks are so full of things to do that they fly by fast and whose weekends fly by even faster. Time has a horrible habit of getting away from me (notice how I don't take the blame for simply having bad time management skills) and before I know it it's Friday afternoon and I have so much yet to accomplish. This past week was no different then the rest and we had quite a few things going on per usual.
It was a gray and chilly day…Continue
