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 […]

So I every year I say ‘this is the summer,’ and I plan a slew of family activities that my children will hold onto. I want them to remember the great summers of their childhood. And every year we hit the road and as any of you who have been following me know. I think […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

With everything that is going on in America I am feeling insecure about my family and our future. Our country is on a moral decline and I have to protect my children. Our job as mothers begins at birth and never ends. Our children and our grandchildren will look to us for protection, love, and […]

I eat healthy, I am thin, I exercise, and really if I am not in perfect health I don’t know who the hell is. I take a multi-vitamin, C, A, B, D3, selenium, grape seed, kefir, wheat grass juice, and flax seed oil. I eat no processed foods and my big vice is coffee and […]

This July 4th I find myself feeling very sad for America. I am afraid of our debt, afraid for my children, afraid we have lost the American Dream. I was working with my daughter just last month, talking to her about how this country was created. What the founding fathers had in mind for us […]
