On a good morning, I love to serve freshly cooked sausage and scrambled eggs with sliced strawberries and bananas.  I may not serve that for breakfast every morning, but I definitely am good about making sure the kids eat breakfast before heading out the door to school.  It’s funny though, because as good as I […]...

For about 7 years, I was a stay-at-home mom.  When I went through my divorce, I became a working mom.  Let me tell you – it was scary putting myself out in the workforce again.  Just the fact that I hadn’t worked in the field for 7 years immediately put me at a disadvantage as […]...

Are you planning any home improvement projects?  I don’t know about you, but when I start looking at home improvement projects online and on Pinterest, the ceilings are often not the first thing on my mind.   Think about it though – worn paint, cracks and outdated textures (i.e. popcorn ceilings) can detract from a […]...

Imagine going through life without being able to see the beauty around you clearly.  Seeing a beautiful sunset with fuzz around it or squinting just to see the squirrel climbing up the tree.  Being able to see clearly is something many of us take for granted.  If a child cannot see well and it goes […]...
