Queen for a day

I’m not a runner, but I did experience a sense of euphoria as I crossed a finish line this weekend: I finally put away all of our wedding gifts. I morphed from a newlywed into... read on

  • Unique like everybody else

    Maybe this is a long shot … but how unique can your wedding idea be if you heard about it from someone else?

    Such is the dilemma of many brides-to-be.

    As I peruse magazines and online articles (type in “wedding trends” on Google and you will find nearly 95,000 entries) on the... read on

  • Linens and things II: A bright idea

    Our front light burned out … again.

    Of course, replacing it isn’t as simple as screwing in a new lightbulb. There is a process:

    1) Open garage door – carefully avoiding crickets, spiders and other creepy crawies – to obtain step ladder
    2) Get a screwdriver to... read on

    “We need towels.”

    I turn to my husband as we poke through the linen closet.

  • Who says you can’t go home?

    But isn’t it funny how life can change?

    The first time I sat in that auditorium I was... read on

  • It’s a double date

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    It has been a long time since I could call my dad and say “I made a new friend today.” I consider it one of the perks of being married. Since October, my husband and I have met several new married friends whom we’ve had dinner with, encountered on a vacation or made plans to get... read on

  • Let’s stay together

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    Why can’t people seem to stay together? We invest time in their relationships. Applaud their triumphs as couples and mourn when things don’t go well. So why is it that everyone is breaking up?

    I blame the networks.

  • Walking down the (grocery) aisle

    They say money doesn’t grow on trees. Technically it does, just not with the presidents on it. This week, I took a journey down the road of money management in a way that I wouldn’t necessarily have before.
