I live in Ponchatoula, LA. The Strawberry Capital of the World.  America’s Antique City. There are numerous annual events that bring folks to Ponchatoula, but this cute town can be a delightful day trip anytime. Just a quick 45 min drive...
I recently shared a list of packing essentials for a ski vacation with children. In addition to learning quickly what gear was useful and what gear could remain at home, we learned plenty about surviving a ski trip with...
My husband and I recently traveled with our 3 boys (ages 9, 7 & 3) to Keystone, Colorado. Four of the five of us have never seen that volume of snow, much less been to anywhere where below zero...

A few years ago, my husband's aunt asked me if I would receive the baton to host the family's Thanksgiving lunch. Y'all, that's a big deal! I was both excited and nervous. I married into the family. I am...
