But not before a...

Climbing tress, riding bikes, hop scotch, and monkey bars were all things that I loved to do on a daily basis as a child. I am afraid many of these things are being replaced with electronic devices and our children are not moving enough! According to research, the amount of physical activity since the turn of the century has declined 75%!...

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.

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's house and got a tour of her lovely backyard. Nestled in the gorgeous flowerbed was a tiny house with a stone path and a small arbor, a few little toadstools and a teeny tiny bouquet of flowers. I asked my friend and she told me it was her granddaughter's fairy garden, a fun little something they do together. I...

As more and more birthdays pass, life seems to get more and more predictable.  Where's the excitement?  Where's the spontaneity?  When I turned 30, I realized that I was eating at the same restaurants, driving the same routes, and doing the same routine everyday.  I needed to spice things up!  There were SO MANY things I wanted/needed to...
