As I mentioned previously, I'm a northern Michigan gal - at least in the geographical sense. If you're expecting a paddle boarding, marathon running, cherry pie eating, TART trail cheerleader, ski bunny, West Bay sailor - well, that's not me. But I do appreciate how blessed I am to live in "God's Country." Seriously - just … Continue reading 3 Things for Q4

I ordered a chicken and an egg from the internet to see which came first.
I love books. Little Missy loves books. Reading to Little Missy is the best - especially when I can do sound effects and talk about the pictures. Leslie Petricelli is a current favorite author and illustrator. Her books are quite simple on the surface - with lots of repetition - but there is so much … Continue reading Fun Books for Toddlers
All at once warm, entertaining, tantalizing, and laugh-out-loud funny, Give a Girl a Knife is a foodie memoir worth reading.
