New Year, Old Me: Embracing More of the Same

Each New Year’s celebration brings with it the inevitable question of what you might want to embrace in the next calendar year. Lose weight? Gain experiences? Make more money?

Simple and Memorable Holiday Traditions

I love traditions. There is something sweet about the predictability and steadiness of traditions in creating holiday memories.   I remember when we first had kids, the idea of starting holiday traditions intimidated me a bit.  Over the years, though, we’ve developed some well-loved holiday traditions. Some were intentionally started in hopes that we would […]
