Becoming a stay-at-home mom is fairly easy; if you’re speaking only about the resignation of one’s job. Becoming “mommy” is a whole different story.

Apples! I love apples so much that I actually have ‘an apple a day.’ My children also love apples. My son eats them alone, shaken with cinnamon, or his favorite, with peanut butter.

Thus, our marathon of a holiday season starts not […]
Kids are naturally curious about the world they live in. Any mom of a toddler can attest to the constant questioning of, “Why?” Being a mommy of three children AND a first grade teacher I spend most of my days attempting to provide explanations. But, I’m always looking for ways that my children (students included) […]
When September starts moms are overwhelmed, but by October our focus turns to getting our homes organized. Whether it’s the mudroom or a closet, we have our own back to school feeling and want to get our organizational systems in good working order. This makes it so much easier to manage our homes and our […]
I am pro pumpkin when it comes to the Fall season. Pumpkin decor, pumpkin foods, and yes, even pumpkin skincare. Did you know pumpkin contains natural enzymes, which makes it great for exfoliation? The gorgeous orange color is thanks to vitamin A, a known ingredient in many anti-aging products. Pumpkin is terrific for nourishing and refreshing […]
