Sometimes, I’m a coffee person, but on a chilly winter night, donning a pair of fuzzy socks as the fire in my hearth drapes a cloak of burnt orange over everything, I am most decidedly a tea person. These precious little leaves, so diverse in their flavor and intention, have a multitude of gifts locked inside.

Every year we make New Year’s Resolutions about our health, our weight, our organizational skills, our disposition and so on and so forth. We vow we’ll take better care of ourselves, be nicer to strangers and spend more time with our loved ones. But how often do these resolutions include our pets? Yep, that’s what I thought.
You’re busy. I understand. That’s why you’ve let yourself default into the dreaded “mom ponytail.” But having gorgeous, healthy hair doesn’t have take all morning or break the bank. With the right products targeted perfectly to your hair type, you’ll go from frumpy to fabulous in no time.
“Have children,” they said. “It will be fulfilling,” they said.
And so you did.
It was nothing at all like the books said. So much harder than your mom made it out to be. And way more amazing than anything you had ever done before.
These are a new twist on an old family favorite of mine. I love to bake cookies for the holidays and this organic, gluten-free version of a classic chewy holiday treat has all of the flavor and way less of the guilt.
This is a great cookie recipe to make with your kids and perfect for those all-too-popular cookie exchange parties. They are so delicious and moist (thanks to the coconut oil), no one will believe you when you tell them these cookies are gluten-free.
One evening at dinner, when my children were particularly whiny and ungrateful, as children have a tendency to do sometimes, I decided to have everyone in the family say what was their favorite part of the day. We went around the table, and if anyone slipped into a complaint or a comparison instead of putting forth a positive thought, they had to start over. And the favorite part of the day cannot involve something that could hurt another’s feelings, such as, “My favorite part of the day was when Sarah left,” because siblings are prone to this type of thing.
One year, my sister and I made salt dough ornaments with our mom. Homemade snowmen, Christmas trees, stars and candy canes adorned our tree that year. Those that survived two small children and a mischievous cat became a part of our tree decor for years to come. It’s one of my best childhood holiday memories.
