Needing Help With A Move?

When a big move was needed for friends of the family they had the daunting task of deciding what items to take and which items were just too much for such a move. With this decision making process my husband and I became the proud owners of an upright piano. We had always wanted one

Vitamins By Pure Matters

I’ve never had a problem eating a balanced meal.  When I pack my children’s lunches I make sure there are colorful veggies and/or fruits in their packs. (It comes home empty, so I’m assuming their eating it ;-> ) I love vegetables, have a bit of meat with some of my meals and generally make

Chat Light – Webcam Lighting

If you are a blogger who does video posts, otherwise known as a Vlogger, I’m sure you’ve had your frustrations with trying to get your lighting just right for your viewers.  Some rooms are naturally bright which makes your image washed out or, you are recording in a darker room which requires the use of

Summer will be here faster than you know it and, if you have a teenager like mine, you’ll be packing plenty of shorts and sunscreen for a much anticipated week at camp.  My daughter went away to her first camp when she was 11 and she was hooked.  When Spring rolls around I hear, “Have

Olay Total Effects CC Cream Review

When it comes to reviews for make-up I have prefaced in past posts that I like to use as few products as possible to get the most results.  Yes, I think make-up can be fun, but on a daily basis I don’t want to spend a lot of time “creating the canvas” when I could

The Search For Retirement Communities Has Begun

When I was much, much younger I thought that by a “certain age” your zest for life was over and all that was needed in your day was a t.v. playing loudly and a rousing game of Pinochle for excitement.   As I’ve grown I am reminded daily that age is truly just a number.  And, even

Time To Plan For Summer Camp

Summer is coming.  Even though there’s snow on the ground in places and cold rain and wind in others, we need to remind ourselves that summer is coming, we just need to hang in there!  Summer means different things to people, for me it means not having to get up early to prepare my children

Carbs Why Do You Tempt Me So?

I am so much more disciplined with my eating habits when the warm weather is upon us. But, once the air turns a bit chilly, and in my case wet from Pacific Northwest “liquid sunshine”, my cravings for salads seem to subside and all I want is pasta and bread. Oh, and cookies. Oh, and
