Mother’s Day from

This is my family. My mother gave birth to us four girls. She stayed at home and raised us while my father provided for the family. Together, she and my father shaped us into well-rounded and independent young women. I'm so thankful. I'm not sure how my mother managed to be such a wonderful mother of four children, but she did it with such grace and love. She taught me so many great lessons of how to take care of people and to be responsible, that becoming a mother myself has come easy for me. You see, I was the first grandbaby in my parents' families and I'm sure I got my fair share of loving. Being the first grandbaby, Liam is getting oodles of loving too.   I'm so thankful to have such young and loving parents who are now amazing grandparents to my son. That's why this Mother's Day, I … [Read more...]

Christmas Gifts for Men: What To Buy Your Husband This Year

I find it difficult to shop for my husband for two reasons. The first is that he tends to buy whatever he wants the day it comes out. This means he may get a birthday present weeks early, and he struggles with waiting to open Christmas presents. The other problem is that he is very particular about the make or model of whatever he currently wants. He loves to research, and so it can be difficult to make sure I have exactly the right model. Here are some ideas that will make shopping for your husband just a bit easier this holiday season.
