Teach Your Children the Way to Follow Their Dreams

Teach Your Children the Way to Follow Their Dreams

If you are a mother or want to be someday, I want you to think for a minute about your life. Would you want your child to live their life the way you are living yours? I hope the answer is yes because you are living a life that you love so much. But, if not you are not alone. The majority of parents want their children to have a better life than they do.

You Know You’re a Mom When…

I enjoyed a fantastic Mother’s Day today! I have been blessed with three beautiful daughters. Today as I was having breakfast in bed that consisted of cookie crisp cereal, cinnamon rolls, and a Hershey candy bar while watching My Friends Tigger & Pooh I got to thinking about all those times in my life that it really hit me that I am a mom.

DIY Men’s Haircut

I cut Dustin’s hair this afternoon. I know for some of you, this is no big deal. You probably cut your husband’s and children’s hair all the time. For us, this was a huge deal! Years ago we bought a set of clippers and I attempted several times at cutting Dustin’s hair. Each time after about 5 minutes we were fighting and I was in tears. I could cut the top and I could cut the sides, but the blending…

Homemade Salted Caramels

Homemade Salted Caramels

At the end of last month I shared, as part of New Things November,  that I wanted to try making Salted Caramel Candies that I found a recipe for on cincyshopper.com. The pictures of the caramels looked so good that I couldn’t get them out of my head. Well, I was in a hurry to try making them and I jumped in without having everything I needed. I figured a few substitutes would be ok. I used margarine instead of…
