  As Christmas is upon us and our family festivities are about to begin for the next two weeks, everywhere I went I was asked that same question, “Do  you have all your Christmas shopping done?”. Nope. “Are you close?”. Not at all, not even close….not a single thing done. BUT, we managed to get our holiday cards out, all 225 of them. Does that count as being on top of my game? It should.

Smile It Forward This Holiday ~The Kindest Gift You Can Give

    Busy, busy, busy. That’s our motto right now, is it not? However, let’s not forget about that this time of year is mainly about helping others who are not as fortunate as us. To appreciate and be grateful for what we have. To leave the world a better place for our children. We are so blessed. We live in a first world country, have a place to call home, shelter and food for our families. We don’t lack for anything therefore it is our responsibility to help those who do. To help one another and show our kids […]
