There’s no doubt in my mind that the best part of the holiday season is the music! You’ll hear it playing in my kitchen from morning until night. I wanted to put together a playlist to share with my readers. But I wanted it to be a step beyond the traditional songs you’ve heard a… [Read More]

My 14 Seconds of Michael Buble Mania…

Let’s talk about Michael Buble. I like to refer to him as ‘My Other Husband’ (with all due respect to my real husband, obviously.) He sets my heart all aflutter. He is perfection.

The Song That Saved My Sanity

Picture it: We’re driving to the cabin in the trusted family mini-van. It’s a few hours in and the kids are getting antsy and restless…and frankly, on my last nerve.
