So. Let’s talk about skin. Specifically, let’s talk about winter skin. Because, right now, we are smack dab in the middle of this utter nonsense called winter. I’m in New England and it’s been abnormally cold and dry around these parts (our Midwestern friends have had it worse, [...]
Have I told you all that I am currently living with two college men?
I have an eight-year-old who does his math studies through Johns Hopkins University under the guidance of a Stanford professor and a husband who is pursuing his MBA through a local university’s online programming. It’s all [...]
Seven years ago, I sat, lonely, in an Indiana farmhouse, caring for a one-year-old and a six-month-old. That six-month-old had arrived incredibly early and we were still dealing with the repercussions of that.
I searched BabyCenter and other “baby sites.” I tried to join the preemie groups and boards the [...]
Do you remember Minute to Win It? Remember how fun it was to watch people make fools of themselves in an effort to complete silly challenges before a minute was up? My husband and I used to laugh our heads off at some of the contestants– either that, or talk smack [...]

While lots of people seem to have different shampoo/conditioner needs based on the season, this is not really the case for me. Yes, perhaps my scalp gets a touch dryer in the winter months but, really, my hair and head are never in the oily camp. Ever.
This is good in that [...]
I posted that photo on Facebook a few weeks ago on my birthday. Under it, I wrote…

Road trip! Those two words just make me smile. I’ve always loved exploring and travelling and seeing new places.
