Thankful For So Many Things

The terrible funk All of us have our moments where we start complaining about situations in our lives we don’t like.  These circumstances are usually small things but when we don’t have control of them, they seem big.  One of my complaints lately is how much my husband has had to work the last couple months.  Which means … [Read more…]

Our Family Vacation to Warm and Sunny Florida

Planning our Family Vacation Because my hubby and I are not fans of the cold we usually take a family vacation in the winter and head somewhere warm.  This year we will be celebrating our 5-year anniversary so we initially thought of Key West.  We were married in Key West and thought it would be nice to go … [Read more…]

Date Night, A Beautiful Thing

Winter…Is it Over Yet?

I do not like winter or anything that comes with it, the cold, the snow, the darkness or the attire.  As I write, it’s 34 degrees and we are getting rain, ugh!  It has melted almost all the snow we got on Thursday so I’m happy about that.  Now that I can see the grass again though I … [Read more…]

A Healthy Start to My Son’s Day – a Smoothie!

Healthy from the start I have fed my son vegetables and fruit as much as possible since he was able to eat them and he actually liked them.  Sweet potatoes seemed to be his favorite but he would not eat bananas.  I don’t usually eat bananas either, mainly due to texture.  His aversion, I believe, was due to their sweetness.  In … [Read more…]
