Challenges, Challenges

There are quite a few blogs out there hosting challenges of some sort. Many are to encourage you to develop good, new habits. Others are to encourage you to encourage others. Either way, sounds like a good plan to me. Here are a few I’ve seen: No Spend Month from Mom Advice Earn a Vacation […]

Greatest Hits of 2008

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for reading. I started this blog on Mother’s Day weekend. The last seven and a half months have been filled with ups and downs, but it’s been so fun for me to bring you ideas, to pose questions, and to find out I wasn’t talking […]

Links of Love: Quick Food Gifts

I prepared this post yesterday before my world dramatically changed. I hesitated to post it.
