  • one week bathroom remodel | home improvement

    Anyone who knows me knows that I never hid the fact that I hated our bathroom. When we closed on our home on Valentine’s Day 2005, it was the one lone room we didn’t re-do before moving in (disclaimer: We did get a new toilet. I just couldn’t fathom the idea of using some old…

  • book reviews

    For as far back as I can remember, I have loved reading. Some of my best childhood memories were riding in our old station wagon down to Virginia or my Dad’s van heading up to Lake George. I would lay on the floor between the seats and read my Nancy Drew books for hours. In…
