Old Fashion Cobbler with Fresh Fruit and Berries

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 old fashion cobbler recipe has been in my family for generations.  It was passed down to me from my mom who…

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…

Why We Don’t Do Summer School

I start counting down the days to summer break as soon as school starts in the fall. Being a parent of school-age children can be exhausting. Being a parent of a child with special needs on a school IEP is a whole different ballgame.  Both of my children are on IEPs. …

Oliveda Skincare

*This posts contains products that were kindly gifted to me. I'm always on the lookout for good, all-natural, anti-aging skincare.  A gal like me, who's over 40, wants to soak in all of the anti-aging creams and jellies that I can get.   That's why I was so excited when 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 after I saw the number on the scale.  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…
