power is gained by sharing knowledge

Happy Monday!  It’s a dreary one over here in New England— what a shocking turn of events!  Not. 😂 We don’t close on our house until mid-March.  There is still time to go back to Wisconsin, right? 😄 Earlier today I decided that since Mondays already suck for all of us, why not go to […]

five fun & easy traditions for couples

It’s that time again – time for my annual post!  Ha.  Just kidding.  But it certainly seems like I only post once a year, lately. 😂 It is an annual post though.

one year in.

Halloween has always been more than that highly anticipated annual day of candy and dress ups.  For starters, it also shares a date with my mom’s birthday.  Happy birthday, mom!
