2016: a chance to move forward

***Feel free to check out the original post at http://www.shadesoflovely.com/2016-a-chance-to-move-forward/



I used to abstain from making new year’s resolution. It always felt as though I was setting myself up for failure- starting out with the best intentions, and then succumbing a few months later (in some sorry cases, weeks) to my old ways. Besides, if a person needs to make a change in their life or set… Continue

The Mommy Masters® December 2013 Parenting Tip: Reflecting Back…

As we near the end of 2013, it’s a good time to reflect on all our accomplishments and continue to make new goals for 2014.  While I am all for focusing on the positive, I believe we should always try to learn from our mistakes, understand why we made certain choices and create New…

The New Year's Guinea Pig Attack

The older I get, the more I realize that New Year's Eve is totally overrated.  I mean, seriously, what's the point of getting all dolled up to spend a shit-ton of money to fight a bunch of annoying crowds to risk being hit by a drunk driver and to then be disappointed that the night wasn't nearly as fabulous as you'd hoped it would be?  That's why my husband and I made the executive decision many moons ago to just stay home and have our own little family party to ring in the new…
