When we moved into our new home 3 years ago, I was on a quest to make our master bedroom into a sanctuary to escape and relax from the craziness of the day-to-day life. However, my budget was TIGHT so I knew I was going to have to get creative in order to achieve the look I was going for.

We walked along the Seattle waterfront, the smell of seaweed, urine, and waffle cones filling our nostrils. People jostled and pressed in all around and I held my children’s hands tightly. Downtown in a big city I tend to get nervous, nervous of purse snatchers and kidnappers, worried that some lady will be getting high in the nasty public...

My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

by  |  posted under Boys, Family, Family Time, Girls, Parenting
I love the movie Nanny McPhee.  She becomes a nanny to a family with very naughty children and teaches them to "behave".  My girls love it when I say "behave" in my silly British Nanny McPhee accent. I decided to write this post because this summer I have been noticing some bad manners in my house and I wanted to fix them ASAP. Just tonight...

It's been a hot summer here in the northwest. The days have been blistering hot, and although it's mostly dry heat, I sometimes feel like I'm going to melt into a puddle on the sidewalk.
