DIY- photo project

I am not a DIYer, well let me clarify.  I do DIY, but I do not do it well, nor do I enjoy it.  I’d rather be in the kitchen making 80 pies or a feast for 50 than painting walls, or refinishing furniture.  I have done both of those, I also have sewn quilts […]

thoughts on Happiness


Nothing makes my heart sing quite like the smiles of my children. When they flash me an honest to goodness “I’m happy” smile it melts my heart. We all just want our kiddos to be happy don’t we? Recently a good friend sent me an email that her daughter would be turning 13, and for […]

Bertolli ~ Italy is served! & $100 gift card GIVEAWAY


Nothing is more important for my husband and me than gathering our family together around the dinner table.  You know how much I love to cook, however, dinner time can be a challenge.   My husband’s busy schedule, three teens, and a tween means I need to get creative with how I actually make this […]
