I love the story, The Night Before Christmas, and read it to our family every Christmas Eve before we go to bed.  After all, that’s what my parents did when I was younger.  So when I heard that Verizon FiOS created an Instagram Storybook called “Twas the Night Before Stanley,” I had to check it out!

Ever since I was a child, I have especially loved personalized gifts.  I remember being a young girl in Girl Scouts and receiving a gift from my Scout leader that personalized by her with puffy paint (remember that stuff?).  The gift was special, but the fact that it was specially made for me made it […]...

I love food.  Not just because it can taste amazing, but because I associate feelings and memories a lot of the time with the food we eat.  Whether it’s a recipe passed down through the family, new foods on a family trip or warm and flavorful meals during the holidays, these meals create an experience.

If you know me, you know how much I love lasagne.  I remember reading “Garfield” cartoons and thinking, “Dang, lasagne really does sound good right now.”  It didn’t last long when my mom would make it growing up, so there often times weren’t leftovers. When I became an adult and started cooking for myself, I found […]...
