Dinner Time Dress Codes

Dinner Time Dress Codes

There are certain daily tasks that we all just take for granted. You get up, eat, have breakfast, brush your teeth, comb your hair and move on with all the necessary activities that lead to a successful day.

What have I been doing??

What have I been doing??

Between the leaves hitting the ground last fall and the new buds on the trees this spring, there was very little time to think about posting here. Ironically, life just felt overwhelmingly crazy and the only way to resolve the craziness was to let this blog go for a while. But I’m back and so … Continue reading

Family Creativity

Family Creativity

Every now and then I have a plan for family fun that actually works out. It’s not easy to find activities we all enjoy but once in a while we come across one that makes us all happy; memories are made. The art project I’m sharing today was one of those plans. We actually did … Continue reading

Happy New Year… sort of.

Happy New Year… sort of.

The first day of school always feels more like the New Year than January 1st does. Even before I had kids this day symbolized a clean slate, a new beginning and the start of my favourite season! The summer was so busy that my blog fell to the side. I think that was important. Resolving … Continue reading
