Everyone has a high school best friend. Unfortunately, as the years go by, we oftentimes fall out of touch or just grow apart entirely. Thanks to Facebook, it seems like most of us are in touch with our past a lot more than we used to be! I have reconnected with several old friends and [...]

The other day, I posted a grown up candy corn treat: Candy Corn Martinis! Today, I’m sharing something a bit more family-friendly.

Ahhh, fall – my favorite time of year! I’m about to dive headfirst into costume-making for my four little kids, along with pumpkin painting, corn maze exploring, and candy corn eating!

My awesome friend Laura Kelly and I met last year in the lunchroom at the elementary school. Our daughters were in the same 3rd grade class, and we both did volunteer work at the school. Eventually we realized we were both bloggers who actually knew a lot of the same people! We decided we should [...]
