Something Old, Something New

      No Comments on Something Old, Something New

There isn’t any time of year more steeped in tradition than the holiday season.  The vast majority of families have things they do every year.  Maybe it’s a certain meal.  Maybe it’s a specific place they gather to celebrate.  Maybe it’s an event like caroling or volunteering.  These are things that people look forward to every year. My dad’s side… Read more »

National Personal Space Day

      No Comments on National Personal Space Day

Even before COVID, I would have been happy to celebrate this one, but it means even more now.  Today is National Personal Space Day. I did NOT grow up in a “huggy” family.  Hugs were reserved for special occasions- thinks weddings and funerals.  We showed love to each other, just not through physical contact.   So I’ve never been someone who… Read more »

He’s only 57 and swears… Read more »

Good Neighbor Day

      No Comments on Good Neighbor Day

Today is National Good Neighbor Day! My husband and I have been blessed with wonderful neighbors.  Having good neighbors makes your move more comfortable for sure. Recent polls show that around 25% of us don’t know ANY of our neighbors.  I don’t understand how that can be, but I live in a small town.  I’m guessing it’s mostly people in… Read more »
