On Country Girls and Department Stores (and turning 40)

It's a near-perfect day. Fall has made a grand entrance, bringing a crisp breeze, clear skies and the scent of apple-cider memories. I turned 40 today. I dreaded it but now that it's here, I'm OK. It's been a good reflective day--not on purpose, just naturally. I have enjoyed my family so much...from the construction paper ...

Taking Dominion One Toilet Brush at a Time

Apparently I have successfully imparted to my 4-year-old that as home-making-dominion-takers we must strive to see beauty in all things. Mallie tied ribbons around every object in the bathroom while her little sister took a bath.

Something Worth Knowing

I probably wouldn't have blogged ...

Christmas Is Not About Peanut Brittle

"This time of year stresses me out.  I try so hard for that not to happen.  I start chanting to myself around the middle of November, "I won't get stressed at Christmas...I won't get stressed..." Maybe it's just my personality, maybe it's not.  But the lists--the many different lists--the gift list, the card list, the food list, ...

Building Memories and Starbucks…Really Big Things in Life

2009 nikon 253

Didn't someone say, "It's the little things in life that matter"?  Well they should have.  "Cause I think it's the little things in life that matter.  (Except when the big ones do, but I digress.) Like cafe mochas.  Only those aren't so little in my world.  A Starbucks cafe mocha is like a really big thing ...

My Husband’s Not in Prison!!!

I wasn't going to post this...then I decided it was too bizarre a story not to tell, so with my husband's permission...here goes: I mentioned he had a delivery job in the summer.  It requires him to drive up north and make a loop back home.  With his trusty GPS, traveling has been easier.  Just punch ...

If Only Our Husbands Could Read Our Minds

If you'll excuse a little transparent/humor relief on my end... Do you ever just feel sorry for your husband? For weeks you're the chipper little thing he married (maybe 😉  And then one day... He walks in from work and you're irritated.  It takes him a little while to notice because when he asked, "What's wrong?"  You ...
