A New Adventure

s1I have been saying no for at least 4 years.  Eric asked.  Matthew pleaded.  Grace begged.  When the Humane Society came to Eric’s work last Monday, with furry friends to be snuggled, I knew the battle was over.  It didn’t help that his coworker [ …]

Reflecting on a Year

fullsizerender-20The time between Christmas and New Year’s has always been a time of contemplation for me.  A time to look back on the year and reflect on the highs and lows.  A time to see the mix of laughter and sorrow.   But through the bitterness there is […]

Star Wars Birthday Party

SWB9My baby, Matthew, turned 6 a few weeks ago and insisted on having a Star Wars themed birthday party.  And when I say insisted, it was all he could talk about.  His only restriction: “No Princess Leia!”  This, or course, hurt Grace’s feelings, because[…]

I Think I’m in Love

 I haven’t been this in love since I met my husband.  Well, I take that back.  I was in love at first sight with my little, precious baby when he entered the world.  Okay, I have not been this in […]

Halloween Party

 So, I had a party yesterday.  It wasn’t my birthday, so I could really enjoy this party.  (Whoever said getting old was fun?)  I made so many desserts it took me all day Friday and Saturday […]

Cupcake Camp

 Yup, you read the title right.  Cupcake Camp 2010 at Newport Beach in Oregon.  I love that there are camps for adults!  And this camp allowed you to eat what you made and eat what others made too.  I […]

Reflecting

  This cupcake was the most recent dessert I made, which was on Saturday.  Sadly, I came to the realization that I’ve made too many sugary treats the last couple of weeks.  This epiphany occurred […]

A Tribute to my Mom

 My mother is one of the bravest women I know.  Not only did she raise three daughters, each 18 months apart, (and survived), on a meager budget because she chose to stay home, but is currently […]

My First Decorating Class

  No, not the first decorating class where I was a student. The first decorating class where I was the teacher. I already knew I liked school and teaching, (that’s why I became a teacher for my […]

Matthew’s 1st Birthday

We’ve been anticipating this day for some time, and now it’s gone. My baby is moving from an infant into a toddler. And while I’m excited about it, it does make me a little sad. Pretty soon he’ll be going to […]

Matthew’s 2nd Birthday

My son turned 2 about a month ago, and when I was planning his party, I told myself I was going to go easy.  Nothing too time-consuming, just keep it simple.  I kept telling myself […]

Grace’s 2nd Birthday

My baby girl’s birthday was yesterday, and it was all I could do to not cry.  Why do the teenage years seem to drag on forever, but when life really begins, does it go so fast?? […]

Happy New Year! I hope your New Year is off to a great start.  Did you start 2015 with tradition, or begin something new? My neighbors have a tradition every New Year’s Day to go hiking in the Gorge […]
