Three Generations for a Memorial Day Mommy and Me Monday

What a fun Memorial holiday weekend! Nanny and Poppy came for a visit and arrived on Friday evening. They missed DH’s delicious Mexican Lasagne, but that’s another post in itself! We are very luck to have family visit often from both Florida and Pennsylvania. Ironically, in all the visits my parents have made here we […]

A Mother’s Day Filled With Love

I am truly blessed with a life filled with love and happiness. As my children grow and make homemade gifts in school for holidays, it takes me back to seeing my own handmade treasures still on display in my parent’s home.

Care Packages With Love

Everyone loves getting snail mail whether it be a letter from a far away or a postcard from a friend traveling on vacation. But in my opinion, the best mail delivery has got to be the care package.

Easter Holiday and New Traditions

We had some major happenings going on for Easter this year and I am finally getting around to posting them.  You would think since Easter was so late, this post would have been written and scheduled to publish, but it has just been so crazy that didn’t happen.  I decided to announce an award for each of […]

Parenting – The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

We all want to be the best parent possible, but what happens when you have a moment when you think you are the worst parent in the world? I think back to my own moment. Baby was in her crib and woke in the middle of the night. She was about 10 months old. I […]

Mommy and Me Monday – Picnic

Spring has been beautiful this year so far and this past weekend was no exception. Warm sun and cool breezes make for wonderful picnic weather. Picnic lunches are easiest to pack with staples you probably already have in your pantry. Chances are you already have bread on hand to make a few quick sandwiches, or […]
