Today I took the plunge

I announced to the universe, (because if a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around, does it really make a sound?), that instead of working a real job this year, (you know, get dressed up, look presentable, rush the kiddos, grab your coffee, get in the car…), I am going to dedicate the next year, (which is really September through May- because face it, when you have kids, your time is chunked into “school year” and “summer”), to pursuing my dream! “What is your dream?”, you may ask.

The Art of Organization

I don’t consider myself a great baker or cook, but I do have go-to recipes that have become family favorites!
