Home…

our happy place.  Traditions, warmth and welcome.

Home is a feeling. It radiates fond memories of countless holidays, birthdays, milestone celebrations and after school projects.  It’s also simply seeing the beauty in the everyday.  It’s where your stories are written, the place where you belong.

Each season brings with it celebrations, holidays, weather – all playing a vital role as to how we live and play.  So many can relate to the feeling of cold weather coming upon us in Autumn.  Long cooked winter meals, football and a crackling hearth.  Shortened days, the rustle of leaves, the scent of candles burning inside a jack-o-lantern.  The sounds, smells and tastes that all come together to create a feeling.  This is your home, your good life.

I would like to share with you my ways to make each day a celebration, make the ordinary extraordinary, and how to be organized and efficient and enjoy living for the moment.

I extend my invitation to you to come inside and experience home…Welcome!

November 2020

Yes, it’s true November is here! I think it’s no surprise that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. What could be better than a day dedicated to friends, family, food, reflection on our blessings and nowhere to go!! Be sure to check out the Entertain section for my tips for stress free entertaining. Also look for some of my favorite recipes if you are the one hosting the big day. I’ve been requested to put together a menu which I’ll be posting sometime soon. This is a great month to start turning our thoughts to long cozy winter days and dare I say, start dreaming of the holiday season ahead. In my book, it’s never too early to start planning.  My MO has always been, get as much done early – shopping, Christmas cards, etc. The early bird gets to relax by the fire when the bustle begins!  Be sure to check out The Hive Shop (on the left) for items I’m adding everyday, plus it’s a one click link to the Amazon site for all your shopping needs! Have a most beautiful November and Thanksgiving my friends.
