That’s serious cause for concern. Premature birth costs society more than $26 billion a year and takes a high toll on families. Babies [...]

I know I have mentioned this before but my husband is an amazing dresser. So for him (and I guess me too) it is important that we pass on this fabulous sense of style on to our son Dominic. Although sometimes I think it would incredibly hilarious if he grew up to be a carefree [...]

I believe that building traditions strengthens families. It adds to the “special sauce” that makes your family unique from all others. Not only that but it is just plan fun to have things to look forward to on a daily, weekly or yearly basis. This year, I have been on the hunt for some new [...]
Among the many benefits of homeschooling that I have been discovering, one of my current favorites is the gift of intentionality. There is something powerful that happens when the reigns of learning are placed solely in your hands. Not only is it daunting, but it is also empowering. Suddenly ALL of life becomes a lesson. Not that it [...]
