It’s summertime and that means it’s time to travel and keep your houseguests comfortable when they drop by for a long or short visit. In our home, it is definitely a challenge sometimes, but it is doable. With our blended family of 8, including 6 kids, we have 3 bedrooms, but we still manage to […]...

  Ever since I was a kid, flying in a plane has made me nervous. I honestly think it’s a number of things, including being scared of heights, having no control over the plane and not really understanding how a huge plane can stay in the air thousands of feet off the ground. Even though […]...

I remember the first time we walked through our home. The ceilings in the front room and bedroom were high, the carpet was white (yes, older people lived here before us and didn’t have kids – hence the white carpet) and the counters were made of granite. I love granite countertops! I love the way […]...
