Discovering Our Neighborhood

Summer is really the only time I get to spend any “uninterrupted by the demands of life” quality time with my kids.  The Barrett Babes actually get loads of TLC from me, and I love filling up on the tons of hugs and kisses they give me and then make them take a nap, ha! […]

A Week of Outfits

A Week of Outfits

This week I tried something new, and I think that it worked.  I made the conscious effort to share a week’s worth of my work outfits, and I have to say, my style choices were well received.  So I have added some of the items I wore, (or similar to) what I wore, on the […]
