Though all of us are curious about our roots and sometimes even fascinated by our family history, genealogy used to be perceived as a dry artform practiced by the retired folks, i.e. the ones who really had the time to delve into the research and the connections and the research again.

These days, we know how special it is to receive a real note card in the mail. Like with a stamp on it. Handwritten and all… It’s even more special if it’s also addressed by hand… And how about if it was personalized with a photo stamp to identify to sender? Even more charming.Continue

Of course! It would take a mom with three children to come up with the perfect backpack designed for road trips. Janet Cortes created Go Baggie after she was tired of traveling with her three young daughters and them always asking her for drawing material or a snack to eat…Continue

I could certainly relate to Sara Buntrock as she talked about her tween daughter when I met her this last January at a gift show. Being a mother of a tween myself (any child between the age of 7 to 12 is considered one), I know that they start having very mature tastes at a very early age (thank you Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus and iCarly/Miranda Cosgrove).

The meal prep/assembly shop concept has been around for a while. But I had personally never experienced it before. Why would I, I thought?
