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. …

Pure Aloha – Napili Kai Beach Resort

I used to think that I couldn’t possibly ever vacation to the same place twice -- there are just too many other destinations in the world to see and experience.  That is what I used to think, when I was younger and prior to having kids. It was also before…

Growing your own Plumeria Tree

Plumeria is one of my favorite tropical flowers.  You can find plumeria trees blooming all over the Hawaiian islands.  It's a simple, yet elegant flower that emits the sweetest of aromas.  I was ecstatic when I first learned that I can grow my very own plumeria tree from just a…

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…
