Happy New YEAR!!! 2018

It is that time of year again, the time we all make resolutions just so we can break them by February 1st and then feel like a failure for the rest of the year. I had three ideas of a New Year’s post. What were popular New Years Resolutions in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, e.t.c. My resolutions and why. The “science” of creating real goals for our life.

A Feast the Kids Will Remember

A Feast the Kids Will Remember

I don’t have many pictures of today, but we had a feast to remember today. My mother is a huge gardener and today we devoured the fruits of her labors. She butchered her turkey named, Turkey. She was tasty! I am positive the kids LOVED it at Nana and Poppy’s house. They played croquet with the other kids and of course Poppy. There were a lot of conversations and stories to share. I learned a lot about a family friend…
