Life’s Batter with Cake

Life’s Batter with Cake

We're big fans of sweet treats in our house. Big. HUGE (cue Julia Roberts). When we run errands, I can always count on Piper piping up and asking, "Mommy... are we getting a sweet treat?" And of course, the answer is always "yes" because life is short and dessert is SO good. Sweet treats above [...]

Will Smile for Snacks

Oh my word! Adele Cabanillas has done it again with her magical, bright and creative photography - capturing my tiny family in our little brick house in the most delightful way.

Time to shop (well, shop more - for smaller things). And we'll be able [...]

Fifty Shades of Naysayers

Thanks to social media - and the media in general, we're now all well aware of the wildly vehement repercussions of succumbing to the temptation that is the highly anticipated '50 Shades of Grey' movie. The film that will undoubtedly infect our steadfast relationships, turn our husbands into abusive animals, whip us into pitiful, silent submissives and send us all [...]
