Old Fashion Cobbler

When summer rolls around and I have lots of fresh fruit and berries in the house, I love to make one of my favorite desserts: Cobbler!  This tasty specific cobbler recipe has been in my family for generations.  It was passed down to me from my mom who got it…

Adventure is Out There

Who's ready for an adventure this summer?  I sure as heck know that we are!  We've been chomping at the bit to get out and start traveling again. Our biggest issue: we were stumped as to where we wanted to go for our summer vacation – that is until I…

Succulent Wall

I love Succulents. The temperate climate here in California is the perfect weather for them.  I have lots of them planted around the house. They look great in their pots and planted in the ground, but when I saw a beautiful succulent wall at a local restaurant, I knew I…

Birthday Celebrations and Traditions

My kid's birthdays are exactly one week apart. I love celebrating their big days, but I am also completely wiped out once they are over. When they were younger I'd combine their birthdays and have a single, giant party each year. Unsurprisingly, as they got a little older they wanted…

It’s Just a Number on the Scale

“Maybe you should buy yourself a slimming one-piece swimsuit."That’s what the nurse told me. I was feeling discouraged after finding out, after a month of working out and eating right, that I had gained weight instead of losing it.  I was told that my hormones and my new IUD were…
