My New Year Eve was more bittersweet than anything. That day will be a day I will never forget because that is when I found out I had a miscarriage. Let me go ahead and put out there that this post will be raw and uncensored. I was so…Continue
I hate Christmas. There, I’ve said it. I dread the time from November 1st to about December 29th. I know, I’m a freak. It’s like admitting that I hate puppies or chocolate. Hating Christmas is unnatural and, as best I can, I try to hide my utter disdain, but it often pops up during this time of year.
Growing up poor made Christmas a real drag. I’d see how stressed my mom would get and, as the big day grew closer, I worried about the lack of wrapped goodies under our fake tree.…Continue

I'm a bit eccentric. I like all things vintage or antique; and if it's handmade I'm in love. I found a company by the name of The Giving Key. They make handmade necklaces stamped with an inspirational word. Now get this! The necklaces are made by the homeless. Yes, "The Giving Key" takes old keys and turns them into necklaces. And the key is stamped with a an encouraging word by people that are transitioning out of being homeless. The homeless are…Continue
We are a young family with two lovely kids from Latvia (Europe). Our family business is making handmade wooden toy building blocks for children. Our wooden toy building blocks bring back the memories from childhood and the natural wooden smell from childhood. They are made the way we had blocks in our own childhood - big enough for playing, smooth for the little fingers and with no sharp edges. And completely natural. They even have a name - Klik Klak Blocks. The name of the blocks…Continue

I pondered the next few hours of this plane ride. Did I have his Scooby Doo backpack? Check. Power Ranger coloring books? Oh no, where were the crayons and mini markers? Oh yeah, they're behind the Cheetos. That's another check for me. Wow! I'm scoring 100 percent in…Continue

I was reading an article the other day that said, 45% of Americans make New Years Resolutions. Can you guess the most popular resolution? Yeah, you probably guessed correctly if you said lose weight. Though, it's pretty popular to make resolutions, only about 8% will achieve them. Though, I've never been a part of the 8%, I'm incredibly…

Have you ever been in conversation with someone and the topic of something you have wanted to do for the longest comes up and they say “oh it’s never too late”?
We spend so much time pushing things aside for later that we don’t realize the time we’ve wasted. We always seem to think we have tomorrow, but sometimes we really don’t. Time waits for no one. We need to learn to invest our time wisely.
Procrastination is a terrible trait.
It's that time of year again, now that the stockings have been taken down, you can take full advantage of decluttering and organizing your home for a fresh start.
Kitchen: Whether your refrigerator needs a good cleaning or your drawers needs to be reorganized, now is the time to do it. Let's face it there are some chores that get pushed aside.
As you're cleaning, make a list of things that need to be restocked. Make sure you leave room for it when…Continue
When I was in high school, I had this fantastic teacher. He was actually the choir teacher and I loved him as the director but although I enjoyed his antics while we sang about "The Month of May-ing", the most significant advice he ever gave me was while teaching my Career And Life Management 20 class.…

I am excited for the new year. You know - new year, new you. Yeah it's cliche but its the truth. You can say goodbye to 2013 and let go of all the negative thoughts, bad memories, and leave the things you rather not mention in the past. New year is a fresh start and that usually begins with the dreaded resolutions. Yeah screw that. I don't believe in resolutions because then you have an excuse when it doesn't work out: "Oh it was just a New Year's resolution." And you are at…Continue
