The planning of themes and menus, the invitations, the decorating, and most of all the coming together of friends… It’s all wonderful. Before I became a stay-at-home-mom to three little people, I was a public […]

The morning air is crisp, soft with dew. The sun warms our skin, and the foliage begins to turn a deep green. Ahhhh spring is finally here, and it’s time to bring out the gardening gloves and dig into the rich soil. Gardening can be a cathartic, therapeutic experience. It’s so rewarding to sow […]
To camp or not to camp, that is the question. Sorry, Shakespeare, but for me, there is no dilemma. Camping ranks right up there with the Zombie Apocalypse for fun. I will participate if it’s a life or death survival situation, but otherwise—um, no. My social media feeds are brimming with photos of smiling families […]

Some of my fondest memories from childhood are running through the neighborhood on those extra steamy summer evenings playing night games with all of the other kids from the hood. It truly is a magical time for children and is such a great opportunity for parents to get to engage & interact with their kiddos. […]

One of my favorite past times (yes, because having a 2-year-old and a 10-month-old qualifies anything done at a leisurely, quiet, enjoyable pace as a thing of the past) is reading. Those that know me probably think, “um…you’re an English teacher, don’t you read ALL THE BOOKS?” I’d love to say yes but…nope. I’ll be honest, at […]
