While people are out shopping the sales and busy trying to get their hands on the latest toy I am here to urge you to remember the Spirit of Christmas! What is important is not on sale. What your children really want they will never write on a list to Santa. What your husband or […]

The Importance of Tradition

I asked a friend what her Thanksgiving plans were the other day and she replied, “not much, I can’t be bothered making a fuss.” Well why not I wondered? Why can’t she be bothered? I think the fun of the holiday is the fuss. So I asked her if she was making a turkey. And […]

The Nest

As autumn sets in and the air gets a nip in it, I begin to stay inside more. My menus change from grilled foods to crock-pot dishes and I trade in my shorts for leggings and sweaters.  The pumpkins and gourds line my fireplace mantle and homemade potato leek soup is on my stove. The […]

I love being outside in the summer. You know I don’t do sunscreen. I think it is just insane to slather chemicals all over your baby. The sun is healthy for you. You and your children need vitamin D. Just be careful. Go enjoy the sun, but don’t bake in it for hours. And when […]

It is so important to spend time together as a family. Any activity where you all spend time together is wonderful. I always planned our weeks with craft time, game night, family movie night, big dinner Sundays, and every season I planned something big to look forward to. The holidays, vacations, celebrations, are all events […]

Valentine gives you an excuse

A lot of times in our marriages we get busy and the little things we used to do, the little love notes, the sweet nothings, the nighties, the flirting, some how, are things of yesterday. But why? Where did all those moments go? Valentines Day gives us all an excuse to reach out of our […]

Reinventing Yourself

As housewives we have left our careers behind to raise our family. And that is the most important job we could ever have. But what happens when the children leave the nest? I am at the age when I have a lot of my girlfriends who have older children going off to college. What happens […]

Every time I hear Bing Cosby sing this on the radio I get choked up. I think about all of your husbands who are deployed dreaming of being home with their families. It breaks my heart. I am so grateful to all of our troops and all of you who are married to them. We […]
