Not the blog post you might be expecting for Valentine's Day, huh?  Broken hearts?

 Well, it may not be what you think!  My daughter and I were baking heart cookies for her friends and family and it was our last batch to roll out.  If you've ever made sugar cookies...

There's something about a New Year's resolution that seems to motivate people.  While I appreciate the idea of resolutions, I don't understand why we tend to wait for a certain day or time of year to make a change.  Can't we do that with each new day?  Why wait to make...

I have been writing for years.  I vividly remember the summer between 7th and 8th grade, picking up my pencil everyday, sitting at my little, white student desk and writing my first book.  Yes, that was my idea of a fun summer.  What a nerd, right? :)...
