Ask A Traveler: Where is your kid’s shirt?

We started this site  because Renae and I wanted to share our best moments and some questionable times. I will not say bad because I believe everyday is a learning experience. I learned to triple check everything and to ask my husband not to clean out the car before a trip because I have "in case of emergency" everything in there. I now have a clothing emergency and my backup plan is in my garage . The grand vacation plan ends in one naked kid so far. We have headed out of town for the night. I … [Read more...]

For Fall and Winter this means more hardy and warm meals such as soups, roasts and chili. There are certain items that … [Read more...]

Fashion Friday: Jewels

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.

Ask A Yogi

I love yoga. It is a sport for everyone. I encourage everyone to try it. It is not defined by your shape or weight but rather your ability to let go. It is your time to engage in you.  I enjoy the hour I spend not thinking about anything. I feel that we often rush and rarely take a moment to reflect on our need for inner peace. I have to say my first class I had a hard time relaxing at the end. That is part of the joy of practice. It is to learn to become more engaged with yourself. I can now … [Read more...]
