I believe OM is in order! #saltlakecity Those oh-so-sweet snowflake stories I was telling you about! The great thing about entering New Year and re-living those highlights from 2018 is that you also get to revisit some of those perfect memories – like mamma’s Spa Retreat to the St. Regis,...

Yes yes I know!!! It is almost mid-December and yours truly is only *just* playing catch-up with her annual Thanksgiving post. Better late than never I say.

It’s that time of the year!!! Hubs always gets a bit cross with me right around this moment each year, where he accuses me of “losing the plot” because I am just too keen to dress up the kids in various costumes. What can I say, they just look too... Continue reading

In an instant.... a mere flash — we went from the beginning of October (anniversary celebration!) to nearly the end (Halloween!!). How did that all happen so quickly? Is this just part of getting older? I always think that I will write more when I have “my down time”... “peace... Continue reading

OMG — October is here already (4Q18)!!! Eeks. This year has officially flown by so quickly by it’s just insane. I can absolutely attest to the fact that September was simply INSANE. Summer was nuts on its own merits and went by much too quickly (Summer Camp! Turning 5!! Shelter... Continue reading

Hello and happy September!!! It’s hard to believe the August is officially behind us (what?) and summer is officially OVER. Doesn’t Labor Day always mark the last days of summer?
