Last week we talked about the analogy of the "Four Horseman of the Apocalypse"- conquest, war, power and death and how they show up in marriage as criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling. I am so glad we are done...
Before I started studying photography, most of my pictures were the same-old-same-old.  I would often show my pictures to friends and family and it seemed they had seen all 50+ images in less then 30 seconds. I now realize...
It's been said thousands of times that "communication in marriage is key". However, it is often so difficult for us to communicate with our spouses. We might have seen how our parents communicated and never knew any different, or we might...
Last week, I talked about what is the most appropriate use of Facebook.  Bottom line: Be Friendly ;-)  Today, let's look at another aspect of Facebook... the dark side.  Duhn Duhn Duhn... We often use Facebook as a platform to voice our...

When I was young, it was really hard for me to relate to my elders. The lack of common interests made a visit to grandma’s house seem like a trip to Mars.  BUT as I aged, I began to...
One of my favorite mommy blogs, BecomingMom, has a series entitled "Mommy SOS" where she asks her readers to give their insight into various mommy-matters. I've always loved these posts as I feel like all of the comments are...
It’s summertime. Kids are out of school and that usually means that at least one parent now has little companions ALL DAY LONG. What do you do if your kids are driving you nuts by, well, being kids? Here...
Moms are so resourceful.  Got a run in your hose?  Here's some nail polish.  Is your hem tattered and you don't have a needle?  Here's a stapler.  Gum in your hair?  Make it a real mess and add some...
Women today are self-reliant and independent, but we often forget how friendships and family can make life rich and full. When I was single, living in Wisconsin (for just 10 months), I lived with a foxhound named Rolex in a very cool bungalow-style...
