As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…Continue

I just love this photo … As much as we may not want to admit it; there truly is a little bugger and devil in all our children. It does not matter how cute and adorable we think they may be at the time because we can't loose sight of the fact discipline is so very important when raising children. We all can attest a child's unacceptable behavior can get out of hand very quickly when it is ignored and not addressed immediately. They are extremely bright… Continue
Thankful for a parents-break, as my daughters enjoyed their grandparents for the weekend.

Because we just attended a wedding…and because that makes me reminisce on my own wedding day ten years ago (geesh, that decade just flew by), today’s post is about a gift we received ten years ago that was most definitely our best kitchen investment EVER. (Not to say that a lot of other kitchen items are somehow not as good. But these have turned out to be simply indispensable in so many different ways.)
So…what is the ONE miracle kitchen item?…Continue

It is the close of Memorial Day weekend. We have definitely had our fair share of grilling, gardening and relaxing. We finally got our pool open so there will be lots of pool time in the
coming weeks. The weather has
turned warm…hot almost and there is a smell of summer in the air.

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.
Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings,
and with my first child just turning one, our walks were just about as
fast as a snail’s pace at that time. Not super-fat-blasting, if you know

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.
I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…Continue

1. The outdoors are calling you!
2. Fresh air does wonders for you and your family.
3. It saves electricity.
4. If you get up…you might just get some exercise.
5. It’s keeping you from being productive.
6. There’s nothing good on.
7. You’ve got a stack of books waiting to be read.
8. Heck, make your own drama.
9. You’ve been wanting to sit down and write for a while now.
10. Life is too short!…

For those who believe leadership is a trait one is born with — well, I disagree. I’ve seen my kids follow their own peculiar drum beat but I’ve also seen them emulate the traits of others they admire. They’ve vacillated between both extremes, exerting leadership traits when confident and relinquishing that role by choice when unsure of how to proceed. In these situations I’ve observed them follow their instincts and have been…Continue
