The Knack of Letting Go

Over the winter season my spacious home began to feel cluttered as if the walls were caving in from a junk pile of toys.  If you were to  wander up to the top floor of my home you would discover a small space overlooking a beautiful window that the sun […]

My Mom’s Baked Beans

As the snow gently falls outside it makes me crave those special foods that my Mom made when I was a kid. It was always after  an afternoon of snow fort building, sledding, and a little cross-country skiing that I would run into the house starved for supper. I knew […]

Moving Day!

In a few hours I will be moving from our little home on the park and getting ready to unpack the boxes in our new home. It is only up the street still walking distance of the children’s school and close to the friends that I have made throughout the […]
