I don’t know what it is about the summertime that makes me nostalgic. But this is the time of year when I am most reflective and introspective. I suppose it’s because so many of my childhood memories involve searching for perfect sea glass and exploring the rocky outcroppings that separated the private beaches from the … Continue reading
This A to Z post is a little different from the previous ones. And a little bit longer. Sorry.

Apologies for the…um, hiatus that we (by we, I mean I) took from the Friday Five. But it’s back! This week’s post was partially inspired by Lynn’s manifesto, as well as by some articles that I’ve written about entertaining kids during the summer. Sure, it’s easy for me to just throw a list of tips out there. However, I’m actually experiencing a … Continue reading
Though this is not a “parenting” blog, we are moms, so here’s our place to dish about kids and families. Whether you have one child or seven, toddlers or teenagers, it’s safe to say that we moms all have similar hopes and dreams for our families. Beyond providing the basics of keeping them fed, clothed, … Continue reading
