Sugar, Sugar: Switch It Out

 Forget the costumes, that’s what halloween is all about: sugar and more sugar. We’re not strict about sugar in our house. In fact, I have a whole stash of fruit snacks and lollipops. But, you know what I hate? A whole bag full of […]

Get Creative with a Night In

Get Creative with a Night In

I rarely have time alone with my husband. Not on a typical day anyway and certainly not time that we spend focused on each other. It’s hard. Once the kids are in bed we both float off to take care of the million things we […]

Blogging and Me: What I Gave Up to Blog
