While the snow (yes, snow) was falling, I was curled up in my warm house glued to my iPhone where I had downloaded an app to track runners in the 2014 NYC Marathon. One of my dearest friends, Taryn, was braving the elements, … [Read more...]

Life has been busy since we moved in. The kids have started in a new school, we have been cleaning and making our home our own, and learning how to take care of our property.

Weekly Meal Plan: October 5th – October 11th

I am sitting here on Sunday night writing up our meal plan. Ben already took care of Sunday's dinner with the kids. I got back late this evening from a girl's trip to New York City! We had a blast.

Transplanting Peonies – Quick and Easy Tips {Video}

We moved into a peony goldmine. Here's what we knew: The previous owners had a most spectacular peony garden. At one time they owned a perennial business and grew their own peonies from seed.

Why Moving Away From My Mom Made Me Look At Her A Little Differently

My mom is a strong woman. That is something I knew for sure. 12 years ago she fought and wrecked breast cancer. She did it with grace and style. Each and everyday, she continues that fight both emotionally and physically. Not everyone sees that or realizes it when you think about those affected … [Read more...]

6 Natural Water Alternatives: Staying Hydrated

I have to admit...I don't really like to drink water. I know, I know, it is the best thing for you. Forget the sugary drinks, I get it. It's not that I want to drink sugary drinks all the time, it's just that water isn't that appealing to me so I end up drinking nothing instead. Which is NOT a … [Read more...]
