Pursuing your Passions

What is your passion? Find your passion! Pursue your passion! I’ve been doing some thinking on my “passion” lately. It is a hot topic and gets a lot of air time these days, you know. If we could just find that elusive passion and pursue the heck out of it… we would surely be living…

What could be better than a two month “vacation” over Thanksgiving and Christmas, right? See Part 1 and Part 2 here. While the long vacation was nice, it unfortunately couldn’t last forever, wah!

Dressed Windows Finally!

The.Toys.Have.A.Place.

Ahhhh. Can you hear my sigh of contentment? The toys in our house have.a.PLACE. One of the things we love about our new house is the bonus room, aka… playroom! Previously in our cozy 2 bedroom house, all the toys had to find a place inside the one bedroom that all three kids shared, which…
