Life Lessons

Life Lessons
When I think back to when I was a teenager, my mom and dad told me all kinds of things about life that I never listened to. I probably couldn’t tell you 3 things that they told me. It’s not because I didn’t listen, it’s because I thought it would never apply to me. I think about it and I wonder what lessons I have learned in [...]

A Mac Girl In a Windows World

A Mac Girl In a Windows World
I’ve been using a MacBook Pro for round two years now. I had tried Mac once before that and I could not manage. I was so lost that I sent it back and admitted defeat. I would forever be a Windows girl. After a long talk with a tech friend I learned that I could run Windows on my MacBook. Okay, I was down to try the switch one more time. This time [...]

Did You Forget Something? It’s Summer!

Did You Forget Something? It’s Summer!
Watching the news the last week has literally made me sick. It’s all over my social media feeds, it’s all over TV, it’s the topic of conversation. With those two sentences many of you already know what this post is about.. It’s summer. We are in a world were the temperatures are warm (if not HOT) and the humidity is unbearable. [...]

Raised Bed Gardening: Perfect For City Living

Raised Bed Gardening: Perfect For City Living
I never really thought about a garden. I have seen people garden and I have thought about it, but never had the courage to jump on that bandwagon, that is until.. this year. I am getting older (yes I just admitted that out loud, publicly) and there are less things to do. We are more home bodies then we really have ever been. We enjoy being home. We [...]

The holidays are here! Everyone is grabbing those gifts, wrapping things, trimming the trees and their homes. One thing I truly adore about Christmas time is all the wonderful smells!

Dealing With The Passing of Your Pet

Dealing With The Passing of Your Pet
Earlier today I got a message from the lovely Kelli at Divas that Pray. She was so very sweet. She wanted to know how things had been going with our dogs and the choices we were making. As you may recall we lost our beloved Sparky from kidney disease. It was really VERY earth shattering for me. When I try to explain how bad it was, I can’t seem [...]

10 Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving

10 Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving
Every year I’ve tried to get the kids to give me at least one thing they are thankful for each year. It’s always interesting to see what they say. Of course as they have gotten older you get much longer answers and certainly something more then the word “you”. It’s always a great conversation. Tonight we headed to my mom’s [...]

How Long Is Too Long To Grieve?

How Long Is Too Long To Grieve?
There are so many times in my life and the history of my blogging that I am compelled to write a post that exposes my true feelings. Let’s be honest.. everyone has problems and we have enough of our own problems that listening to other people’s problems isn’t what we really want to do. We want to escape our lives in that 10 minute [...]

Organization 101: Clear That Clutter
Most people who know me and have seen my house would say that I have a minor issue with OCD. While I will not deny that, I have to say, it started with not being able to find things. There are so many times I am on a phone call and need information off “that one sheet” or when I need a Sharpie and all there are is pens. Every container [...]
