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!

Month to Month Inspiration

June 2016

As a parent, I think we tend to start and end our calendars with the school year.  I’ve mentioned this before with my September posts.  This year I am experiencing my first high school graduate and I have to admit, I know I’m sentimental, but I was not ready for the onslaught of such emotion.  Seeing many of the children I’ve known since Pre-K, grown up and moving on in their lives has caught me reminiscing for weeks!  Hearing the echoed cliché in my head, “they grow up quickly”, cannot possibly ring more true.  It wasn’t quickly, it was more like lightning speed!  At one point we are buried in diapers, strollers, lunch boxes and play-dates, and the next moment we are out on college visits.  It truly happens that quickly.  I would have never believed it, but with 4 children, I’m living it!!  June has never before been so bittersweet.  At once an end and a beginning.  Congratulations graduates, your time has come.  Carpe Diem!
