Happy Shopping

I’m sure your inbox is overflowing today with Cyber Monday deals; it can be overwhelming  and maybe even slightly annoying. I’m also sure many of you, like myself, want to support small/local businesses and those with a greater purpose. I want to take a moment…

Cheers To 50 Years

This past weekend Mom & Dad celebrated 50 + years of marriage…how AMAZING IS THAT?!  Their anniversary was actually in January but they decided they would rather celebrate in the summer…because traveling in Northern Michigan in the middle of winter is less than ideal…

My Story

A few weeks ago Mark nearly made me swoon… he mentioned (out of nowhere) that we should pick a weekend soon to go through the house room by room and deep clean together.  Yes please! We have a pretty even divide of regular “chores”…
