Celebrating our child’s hard work through their first twelve grades of school, or years of college, is the priority of graduation season.  While there are many things happening at the end of senior year, the celebration is one element not to be neglected.  I’m a believer in marking milestones.  It is important to stop and [...]

  There’s just something about the islands – full of warm Aloha, lush vegetation, white sandy beaches, graceful hula dancers, jumping dolphins, and towering palm trees.  Hawaii is beautiful no matter where you go, but there is one island that, in my opinion, wears the crown jewel:  Kauai.  Some of the other islands may be [...]

The Davenport, located in Spokane, Washington, is a stunning historic hotel that opened in 1914. In its turn of the century glory, it was known as the most modern hostelry in the United States, boasting air conditioning, a pipe organ, a central vacuum system, housekeeping carts and accordion ballroom doors. This landmark hotel shut down [...]

  One of the very best ways I know to fight the crazy around the holidays is to go on offense, rather than play defense.  That means we have a game plan and don’t wait around for the stress to hit before we act. One of my biggest goals for the holiday season is to [...]

A senior trip is a tradition in our family, and when we asked our daughter where she wanted to go (within reason), there were two things topping the list:  beach + adventure.  Few places offer that as well as Costa Rica.  It is a natural choice for those seeking the sun, but who also want [...]

“Well, this is it Mom.” Her hair blew her over her face as the warm wind passed over her tanned armed into the car. “The last stretch. Two more months of high school and that’s it.” Immediately my throat tightened and I bit my lower lip. I knew this was coming. Spring break in Costa [...]

Steak sandwiches are a crowd pleaser, easy to make ahead of time, and satisfy the most hungry guest at the table.  Don’t overlook this as one of your family staples.
