At the beginning of this school year I took a few moments to think about how many more Vitamin C tablets I had left in the bottle (I make a point to take one each day, especially during the school year and flu season). Yet as the second week of school rolled in, so [...]

Mornings have the potential to become quite hectic. I can’t count how many times I’ve let a not so perfect morning affect my attitude. Whether it’s changing outfits three times, waking up late or a fuse blowing in the middle of me blow drying my hair, I’ve been known to let the unpredictable get [...]
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for Fall to be here. I want to say goodbye to this sweltering hot and humid Virginia weather and say hello to temperatures in the 70’s, changing leaves and the occasional Pumpkin Spice Latte (yes, I am one of those people…). But wait, if the [...]
If you had given me a plant of any kind 6 years ago it would have been dead within a week. Growing up I had always had a brown thumb. I thought plants were lovely- I just never managed to keep many of them alive. In middle school I asked my mom if I [...]

I love to eat. I even enjoy cooking most of the time. However I have tried and tried again to trick myself into loving meal planning and I have failed miserably each time. In my mind I picture myself happily cooking away and then storing everything in our fridge in a beautifully organized way. [...]
It's incredible to me to think about how much paper our mail carrier manages to shove through our small mail opening in the door each day. Bills, magazines, advertisements, and coupons are just some of the things that we come home to every afternoon. My husband and I would pick them up, toss [...]
Old photographs. Letters. Drawings made by my younger siblings. These are just some of the sentimental items that I made myself go through. Deciding which sentimental items to keep and which to get rid of is an extremely difficult task. I definitely felt that pang of guilt when I decided to get rid of [...]
