I went to visit the College of Charleston last weekend with my daughter and met a nice kid who recently moved to the area from the Northeast. A job opportunity brought him there which led us to a conversation on colleges. He's a recent graduate from James Madison University and is $50,000 in debt. His story is like a lot of kids' and they are questioning whether going to college is really worth it? According to the Project on Student Debt, the average debt carried by college grads…Continue

I remember the good ol’ days when my husband used to make me breakfast in bed. In fact, as Valentine’s Day approaches I asked him about the amazing puffed pancake he used to make for me way back when. It took a bit of prompting (obviously it has been way too long) but he finally remembered and started the search for the lost recipe. Torn from the pages of a 1992 Select Homes magazine, we finally found it! Here it is…
BERRY BREAKFAST PUFF (for…

It is finally official! My story Delivered Not By The Stork has been selected for publication in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms. The newest book of the Chicken Soup series will be in the bookstores on March 8, 2011.
My daughter was incredibly excited about graduating from elementary school. A budding artist, she even drew a portrait of herself and her friends with the words "We're middle schoolers now!" above it in bold print. But the beginning of the year was a disaster.
