A couple of years ago I confessed right here on this blog that I feel like a failure when it comes to teaching my children how to give back to our community. Oh sure, whenever the school asks for canned goods to be donated for our local food pantry- I am right there loading up […]
Are your kids hitting that age where they are not sure if they still believe, but are kind of afraid not to believe for fear of missing out on presents Christmas morning? Are you hoping to have just one last year of a magical Christmas? I know I am! So there are a few things […]
As I sit here with my family watching a few of our favorite TV shows, I am struck by the number of ads that capture our attention and make us want to own more “stuff”. For the kids- it’s movies, video games, and toys. For me, I see these cool commercials where the wife or […]
This time of year we spend so much time running around trying to make the holidays great for our families, that it can be hard to find time to reflect on the past year. And then come January, we are all focused on making some new (good) habits, and choosing our “Word of the Year”, […]
In the midst of so much cooking, baking, and just enjoying the day, and before we rush into the start of the holiday season, I wanted to slow down and pause and reflect on everything that I have to be thankful for. My husband Steve Steve is my rock, my foundation, the center of my entire […]

This week I put away the Halloween decorations and got out the paper turkeys to display on my family room mantle. We’re full-on into November which means it is time to practice gratitude and start thinking ahead towards the holidays! This month I’ll be hosting my annual Momof6 Holiday Gift Guide series (along with some […]
As a little girl I was in love with the “Little House on the Prairie” series. I loved the books, I loved the TV show, and I loved to imagine what it would have been like to be Laura Ingalls growing up in pioneer times, wearing aprons over my dresses with petticoats, and bonnets, and […]
On Tuesday I was fortunate to attend the Swiffer® Pet Event in NYC, recognizing the partnership between Swiffer® and the ASPCA in helping to find permanent homes for dogs and cats throughout the country. Last weekend, the ASPCA partnered with dozens of animal shelters to hold their 2014 Mega Match-A-Thon event, and over 5000 animals […]
