do stuff with your kids

one day I’ll look back- grateful for the time I spent being with my girls I love haikus. They say a lot with few words. Sometimes lots of words make me tired, lol! Like yesterday- for some reason I was really, really tired. I could chalk it up to the time change and still getting […]

Living for NOW

Looking for the perfect Christmas ham, I ventured into a high quality food store- only to be shocked by the extreme prices of their meat!  Why, I could buy an entire week’s worth of groceries for the price of one of those fancy hams! So I went to store #2 -and much to my dismay […]

Back in my day…

Yesterday I had the joy of sharing one of those “back in my day” stories with my daughters… While I was looking through some pictures from a trip my husband and I took to Paris-B.C. (before children), I found something from my childhood that I have been looking for for years! When I was about 10 […]
