{5 Things I Learned from My Parent’s Marriage}

I’m prefacing this by stating that I lived a charmed life. My memories of childhood are nothing short of pink ribbons and ponies. I used to walk to school with my sister, hand-in-hand, and eat dinner with my entire family each night at 5:30 p.m. It was, what some would call, a dream childhood. We …

{The Northern Virginia House Hunt}

Andrew and I went out on Sunday to view some of the local open houses. Now believe me, I realize it’s winter and it’s definitely not when the most or “best” houses are out on the market, but {and this is a huge but} we were so disappointed. We really don’t have any reason to …

{Challenge: Pay it Forward in 2013}

I’m sure all of you have seen the Pay it Forward challenges that have been going around on Facebook and I started thinking “Why couldn’t we do this in the blogging world?” Think about all of the blogs out there, and if we pay it forward to each other (or our readers) in 2013, think …

{Thankful Thursdays: My Hema}

Hey all, I’m back for Thankful Thursdays. I missed last week due to my travel back from Virginia Beach. The quote above is an exerpt from a poem by Langston Hughes: “Life is for the living. Death is for the dead. Let life be like music. And death a note unsaid.” However, my grandmother said …

{Doing More}

September isn’t a good month for me. Last year, on September 15, Andrew and I laid to rest our dog Casey. She was our child since there aren’t any children in the McBailey household just yet. I blogged about it last year on my other blog that I’ve since abadnoned, so I won’t rehash it …

{Thankful Thursday: Postponing Joy}

Do you find yourself saying “If I could just [fill in the blank] I’d be so much happier”? I caught myself saying that yesterday in the car when chatting about the woes of Northern Virginia traffic and cost of living. But really, would [fill in the blank] make me/you THAT much happier? Am I doing …

{Monday Madness: Saying Goodbye to Summer}

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little freaked out that this is the last week of August. Where in the world did summer go? On Facebook all of the moms are talking about their kiddos heading back to school. Back to school already? Labor Day is this weekend? Wait a minute, this all …
