This Holiday Season, I find myself feeling grateful and blessed. When I look back on 2013, I am filled with emotion. It was a year of growth, both professional and personally. I am reminded of the greatest lesson that I learned, the gift of time with those that we love. It is so easy to get […]


Have you ever spent Thanksgiving away from home?  I don’t mean away from home at a relatives house, I mean away from home at a beautiful resort.  I can honestly say that we had not, but boy are we glad we did!  As I write this post, I am sitting on the back porch of […]


Football is in full swing and there is practice during the week and games starting on Friday night and ending Saturday night.  Ron and I have settled into quite a routine after 14 years and we have become quite creative when trying to find time outside of football even if it means packing the kids […]

Listen to the gentle simmer of the sauces […]
