I think I’ve read just about every organization, Feng Shui, and “simplify your life (and stuff)” book out there.  While I agree with much of it, I’ve yet to read how to do any of this while kids actually LIVE and LEARN in the home every day.  So, I’ve created my own simple “How to” […]

How to: Have Confidence in Yourself

I’ve been asked how it is that I’ve come to be so confident. Interesting question! This post could have been titled “How to Love Yourself”, as confidence and love go hand-in-hand.
