I don’t know about all of you, but we experienced some great moments and some rough ones in 2013. Those rough moments were hard to deal with, and often left me crying and wondering “How much more can I/we take?” Somehow, though, we made it through all the highs and lows, and here we are….better because of all the experiences we’ve...

Before now, my holidays were busy, but not super hectic because I didn’t have to plan family activities around custody schedules.¬†But when I met my boyfriend, and we made the decision to move in together, to join our families together as one, things instantly changed for all of us, and I ended up with some MOMents that will stay with me for as long as...

Halloween is just around the corner, so that means it’s time to set some time aside to carve pumpkins with your kiddos. My kids already did theirs, but had we waited, we could have used the FRANKENWEENIE pumpkin stencils that are available for free download below.
