Home Sweet Home

I’ve been a little lacking in keeping up with this blog since we found out we were moving back home last year. It’s been a whirlwind—hubby’s new job offer  came while we were in Disney last September, and three and a half weeks later we were packed and moved. Easy-peasy, right? Not so much. We […]

Family Fun

The weather in NC was fabulous–but that wasn’t enough to make up for all the family events we missed out on when we were far away. Of course, that was one of the main reasons we jumped at the opportunity to move back to PA a few months ago.

Signs of Spring

We are buried under a half-foot of snow in eastern Pennsylvania, but this week still showed some early signs of spring. Yes, I know that technically spring is still over a month away, but a girl can dream of warm, sunny days even in February, right? 😉 Wednesday was beautiful – 61℉ with mostly sunny […]

Settling Back In

After two long months in PA, I am finally back home and settled in. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to return to my daily routine–writing, cooking, and even some baking. Of course, I do miss the magical sink in my parents’ house–put something in and it disappears, only to reappear in […]

Fall with Friends and Family

One of the hardest parts of living in North Carolina is that most of my family and friends are five hundred or so miles away. The second hardest part is missing the lovely colors of fall in the northeast. Sure, the leaves change in North Carolina, too, but it always seemed more dramatic up north–brighter, […]

Beauty of Spring

Just as spring was starting to fully bloom in North Carolina, Hubby, Pup, and I had to make an unexpected trip to Pennsylvania. Because we had an already-scheduled vacation in our hometown a couple of weeks later, I ended up spending three (very cold) weeks sleeping in my childhood bedroom. When we arrived at my […]

Family Rivalries and Opening Day

 One of my favorite days of the year is here again! Yay for Opening Day! I have always been a Phillies fan, but I married a Red Sox fan.  For those of you that follow baseball, you know this is not usually an issue. Philadelphia is an NL Team and Boston is an AL team. […]

Christmas in October

I love Christmas–the music, the cookies, the decorations, people going out of their way to help others (except in the stores–I avoid stores at all costs at Christmas time), and, oh yeah, the cookies! 😉 Even so, I have always had a not-before-Halloween rule for anything Christmas (except the shopping–that needs to be done as […]

Princess Puppydog

Jon and I don’t have kids–we have a pup.  We didn’t plan it that way, but we love our life and our baby, even if she is a five-year-old dog. 😉 We always planned to have one of us home with the kids once we had them.  The opportunity for me to leave my job […]

Major Changes and Warmer Weather

The last few months have gone by in a blur.  In early February, my husband was offered a great new job. It was in the industry he wanted, doing what he wanted.  He was ecstatic. There was no question, this was the right move for him.  That didn’t mean it was going to be easy. […]
