Yes Virginia, I Am Christmas Shopping In July

I don't generally plan to start my Christmas shopping in July but every year, it seems to work out that way. Too many really cool things cross my path or I've saved a half dozen links and they all start to pile up in Evernote and that leads me to just go ahead and BUY now rather than waiting until the last minute. This actually works out really well since I can get a big batch of shopping done and my wallet (or gasp, credit cards) don't groan quite as much under the weight of all of the purchases in November and December. Take a look at some of the things I've bought (or plan to buy) this month: ...more

ReVah Wine

 There are tons of moms out there who rely on wine to help them with the daily grind that is motherhood.  I am not one of these moms simply because I have a ridiculously low tolerance.  A simple glass of wine with dinner has the potential to make for a very embarrassing night for anyone who happens to be with me.  I’m not sure how I became such a lightweight, but it is what it is. ...more

From Empty Nest to Love Nest

So what are my husband and I to do now? Now that our once-full and busy “nest” is found empty and we are therefore suddenly free of all family responsibilities? “Children responsibility”; of worrying and providing for, that is! What should now fill the many empty hours and [long] days ahead that were once in-every-respect spoken for—cooking and cleaning for...chauffeuring for...cultivating good manners, and how-to make life choices that will meet their individual needs for their long-term happiness?...more
