Dear Carly, I anxiously waited for your dad to walk into the door of our new home in Baderville. He had been working a long day at Battery Systems and the few hours that I held the information to myself,...
I've soaked up the Hollywood version of relationships throughout my entire life. Thus, my idea of romance and courtship comes from a combination of 80's and 90's rom-coms, General Hospital, and Beverly Hills 90210. I know, it's surprising that...

I'm one of those people who overuses the word "love." In 10 Things I Hate About You (perfect movie from the 90s), Bianca says, "There's a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I love...
Well...not daycare. My children don't go to "daycare." They go to an early childhood enrichment center. I usually just say child care, or school. I've heard several people make the comment about not sending their children somewhere during the day because they...

  I’ll never forget the day (over 10 years ago) when my husband comes home with our 2-year-old very distraught (the husband not the kid!). They had been at a splash pad/ playground and I had stayed home with the...
The onset of winter brings on a mixed bag of physical and emotional states: joy and stress, illness and elation, busyness and depression. Namely, it can trigger many cases of "Winter Blues." It's important to realize that everyone has their...
It was a beautiful day in our mountain town.  After days of gray clouds and rainy skies, the sun finally poked through and graced us with a lovely afternoon. Never ones to be cooped up inside, my boys were dying...
