Where’s My Alice?

By Carina

My house has kind of gone down the tubes lately. I've been working more, traveling for work, and with the kids home all day for summer break, we've reached a level of grody that the house hasn't seen in many a month. It kind of got me thinking about the work that women do, especially mothers. 70% of... Read More

Weekly To Do List Printable

By Erin Oltmanns

I know. I’m on a list kick. But this one is too good not to share immediately.

Remember when I cleaned out my closet? Since then, I’ve lost another 10 pounds and the clothes that were “comfortably roomy” had become “loose to the point of extreme frustration”. It was time to kick the latest batch of “back up” jeans to the curb and reassess some of my clothing c... Read More
