The Easy Way

I’m constantly trying to find the easy way to do things. Laundry, keeping up with the chores, cooking, sewing, etc. Anything that can make my life easier and run smoother, even if it takes a little longer, is my preferred choice. So when I was due for a HUGE trip to the grocery store, I put it off for days because I found myself in a huge quandary. Sofie likes to sit in the car…

they say it’s your birthday

I have a thing for birthdays. I LOVE them. Not just a little, but a whole, whole lot. I had a streak of several years where I had less-than-stellar birthdays. But every year The Hubs tries to out-do himself and give me the most amazing day imaginable. Last year was pretty incredible! (minus the fact that I was in the incubation period for the stupid Swine Flu and spent the next 2 weeks on my…
