I enjoy cooking. I like seeking out new ingredients or trying a new twist on a diet regular like chicken. It wasn’t until I received a review copy of Cooking with Coconut Oil : Gluten Free, Grain -Free Recipes for Good Living in the mail that I realized, lately I’d stopped [...]
While some friends have stayed with us since grade school, others come in and out of our lives. Over time, our criteria for friends change. The criteria for an Elementary Friend might be as simple as living close to each other, a University Friend might be someone who keeps the same hours as you, or is in the [...]

Fellow Savvy Stories Mom Forever in Mom Genes shared this heartfelt video her [...]
A number of mom-blog posts refer to being a stay-at-home parent as a job. Having recently decided to spend an additional year at home with my children, I have been struggling with this concept.
