My daughter playing with some snow (photo taken years ago)

  The Northeast lucked out and missed being hit by a blizzard of historical proportions.

Labels

  As a mom I like to keep my home clean and organized. My teenagers don't necessarily feel the same way. I admit that my work desk is "organized chaos," bu the rest of my home tends to be tidy and organized. I like things to have their own place in our home. If I find something out of place it actually bothers me - A LOT. If I see a DVD in our … [More...]

I also enjoy … [More...]

  I love to read. Sadly I don't always have the time to pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. There are days I'm lucky if I can read a few pages let alone a chapter or two. That is why I enjoy reading magazines. I am able to read articles in a matter of minutes, plus I find a lot of great recipes and ideas for around the home. I … [More...]
