Before my husband and I got married, we agreed that neither one of us would give up our religious traditions. This is always more complicated around the holidays, and especially now that we have children. There are plenty of articles...
"You should really be an engineer... that's where the money is." Okay, here we go again. We're approaching the holiday season, which means more time with friends and family. The unsolicited advice from those close to us is already starting...
Jealous of my sister and her husband taking a 10-day cruise to the Bahamas and reeling a little from dealing with the whole of 2023, I desperately wanted to take a trip for Thanksgiving instead of slave over a...
I knew this day would come — the day my son would start questioning Santa’s authenticity. He’s 7 years old and in second grade. Someone in his class (who has older siblings) told him Santa was not real and...
My kids love counting down to Christmas morning. Each year we have a variety of different Advent Calendars counting down to December 25th. Some are store bought and some are homemade, but it really doesn’t matter where they come from,...
