Ask A traveler: What lessons did you learn

I just got back from a 16+ car trip to Florida. We had a wonderful time but I believe you need to document mistakes so you do not make them again. Here is what I learned: 10) Plan your trip so you do not arrive at your destination at 3:00 in the morning or so you do not have to debate staying at a place that charges by the hour. Deal or no deal???? 9) When looking for a place to stay after driving over 14 hours with three wide awake children at 2:00 am do not drive around to save $3.00 your ...

Fashion Friday

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can't see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato's closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast! The best ...

Ask Someone Who Believes In Creating Traditions

The Holidays are coming. This is a time to reflect on the last year. I have to say a lot has changed in our lives in the past year. We have added a new member to our family. We have made a lot of changes on the way we do things. We always try to teach our children about the meaning behind the Holiday which is a bit of a challenge since I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic. That being said this could be the most complicated time of the year but it isn't. We instead focus on  our family ...
