We’re into the thick of December now, and if you are like me, at this point you’re overwhelmed by the (self-imposed) pressure to create a magical holiday season for your family. By nature I am low-key and a bit of an introvert, so the idea of wearing my family and me out by seeing and […]

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and while I love having friends and family over and cooking (and outsourcing) a big meal, it is a lot of work. Because my kids don’t seem to care that I am spending a good portion of the day prepping for the Thanksgiving meal, I have come up […]

Growing up in the Midwest, I loathed fall. The glory days of summer were waning and the dark days of winter encroaching. Now that I’m a desert dweller, I have a new love affair with Autumn. It’s a hiatus from spending on restaurants, play places, and all other air-conditioned safe havens. And it’s the best […]
With the temperatures finally beginning to drop, autumn is a wonderful time in the Valley. Outdoor activities and fall festivals finally allow us to release our cooped up kids, who have spent the summer avoiding the sun’s roasting rays. If you’re like me, however, proximity isn’t always as appealing as the possibility of a car […]
Last week, my family and I decided to head up North for a day trip. I love that there are so many great places to visit in Northern AZ (Sedona & Flagstaff are my faves) within a few hours of the Valley! On this trip I wanted to visit our family’s cabin to see what […]
