When a tragedy, such as the recent events in Florida, strikes, I find myself either staring at the television in horror or running from every form of media because my heart is too broken to bear any more.
In anticipation of Memorial Day this weekend, I decided to share a post I wrote several years ago. It says well what I’d still say today.
Hard cider is making a comeback. But why do we need to be literally hit over the head with an apple (okay, maybe figuratively, but the commercials are convincing) to be told its good when cider was historically one of the beverages of choice during the founding of the United States?
Sunday is Mother’s Day. Before you drop what you’re doing to scramble for a card, gift, or brunch reservation, think about why.
Spring time is here – or so the calendar tells us. As April’s showers give way to the buds and bright colors of May, there are a couple of fun holidays to celebrate.
It’s that time of year, the election year. I don’t plan to address politics, actually I plan to do the opposite. Because, growing up in Chicago taught me one thing about politics… you have to shake your head and keep smiling (after you’ve voted early and often, of course).
I’ve always considered myself to be patriotic. I love flag etiquette, singing the national anthem and other patriotic songs, and studying about how we became this great nation. However, it wasn’t until this weekend that I realized those feelings are actually thanks to my family.
