I read once, "A divorce lawyer is way more expensive than a babysitter ... make date night a priority." Don't ever stop dating each other. It's fun, it's purposeful, it's important. On a bigger note, don't ever stop looking...
Black Friday is coming quickly! I love Black Friday! It’s basically like Christmas for me. When I was a teenager, there used to be a store that would randomly give away $20 gift certificates to the first 20 customers. My...
My oldest son starting Kindergarten opened up a whole new realm in the parenting world.  Before this, there had been baby books and calls to the pediatrician and really most things could be solved with a healthy dose of mom...
My husband is awesome. His love for books belittles screen time, and it makes it really easy for him to instill that in our kids while also encouraging me to do the same. Not to say I don't turn...
