Visualizing Baby

I am fortunate enough to work for two amazing chiropractors, Dr. Dawn Cadwallader and Dr. Rob Cadwallader.  They came into my life by way of a friend, Jess.  Jess and I went to high school together.  Jess and I didn’t like each other very much…well, at all… in high school.  There was a boy involved,…

Today this green tip comes from grandma and me! She loves to cover her tables with a home-made embroidered table cloth! It is still very popular in our area! What was the last embroidered thing you saw or own? My idea is to put a new hippy twist on it. I just started mine today!…

Lazy or Smart???

When Troy was younger, I made sure he did things on his own. Some we taught him, others he figured out on his own, BUT he was fairly independent as a toddler. I remember being somewhere and a man stepped in to try to help Troy with his jacket (because apparently I was totally ignoring…
