2016 was some kind of year! While there were so many tragic, disappointing and upsetting public events and deaths, personally it was actually quite a good year. My little family is thriving, we welcomed a new nephew (my brother's first child and the first boy cousin on either side of our families), I've taken up running and am quite likely in the best shape and health I've ever been, and I've completed my college diploma! Now comes the nerve-wracking part: job hunting. I've successfully joined two Read more [...]
I have been working with Personal-Planner.com for the last 3 years, and I'm so pleased to share all of the fun new options that they've added since my 2015 Personal-Planner.com review!

These titles from Candlewick Press are all wrapped up and under our tree, just waiting to be opened and enjoyed!
We have been fans of "The Princess in Black" since we received the first book in 2014 and I know that both of my daughters will enjoy the latest adventure! Princess Read more [...]
Stocking stuffers can be both the most fun and hardest things to shop for! You want to find something small enough to fit in the stocking, hopefully not too expensive, but not junk or only candy. PLAYMOBIL® has so many fun options that would be perfect as a stocking stuffer or gift for almost any child in your life!
I'm pretty enamored of my new nephew, who is only going to be about 2.5 months old at Christmas. He's obviously too young to actually play with PLAYMOBIL but I could not resist the Read more [...]
