52 Photos Project -Week Three “Blue”

When I saw this week’s assignment “Blue” I knew immediately which photo I wanted to share.  This one, my favorite of all of the photos I took in Rome. Like so many things in life, you have to see things in person to really appreciate them, but just look at the blue in the angels

52 Photos Project-Week Two “Doorway”

Prince Edward County Wines And Discovering New Things, Part One

I have been waiting all week to find time to share this adventure with you. Something wonderful happened this summer.  My children became old enough to stay home on their own while my husband and I went away for a few nights.  Gloriously alone. To be clear, by “old enough” I mean that one of

5 Things That Will Help You Survive Back To School and Fall Chaos

Ah September.  Welcome back. I love the slower, easier pace that comes with summer.  The days are longer, the clock seems to slow down and everyone just seems to be able to relax.  Once my kids got to the point where they could be on their own during the day, or even better, get a
