Peach season…one of my favorite seasons of the year. A couple of weeks ago we drove out to our favorite farm (if you live in the Metro DC area check out Homestead Farms) to go peach picking. My mom came with us and we were surprised because not only did they have peaches, they had… Read More Peaches – From the Tree to the Freezer to your Stomach – Yum!
If you are a home schooling Mom, you are probably asked a lot why you homeschool. Truth is, there are a lot of reasons why Khari and I homeschool our girls. Yet, oftentimes when I struggle with answering the question fully…maybe because it is an ever evolving answer. So I thought I would start capturing… Read More Reason #1 – Morning Hugs
Today’s Happy is all about Khari. I must give a giant THANK YOU to the kind ladies who work with him. He told them about the first time he went to King’s Dominion. He shared with them that he had only $5.00 to his name. Everybody kept talking about how great the funnel cakes were. He used… Read More Funnel Cake!: This Week’s Happy!
This bread came about because I had two extremely ripe bananas one lonely peach. The strawberries came from a small farm about five minutes from our house. But like most freshly picked fruit, if you don’t have a plan for them they will have a plan to go bad.

After the threat of Hurricane Joaquin, we all have been enjoying these past few days of what… Read More Out & About: Blasting Off at the Air & Space Museum
It has been a great week! This was our 2nd week of school and I think I have finally ((almost…maybe…prayfully) adjusted to waking up at 6am. It was rough ya’ll, I am not even going to try to tell you anything else other than it was H.A.R.D. But waking up in the morning, before the… Read More My Week in Review: August 31st -Sept. 4th
On the corner of 113th St. and St. Nicholas in Harlem, NY is a restaurant that every person who appreciates delicious, unpretentious cuisine should visit. Wow, I just left the restaurant and already my taste buds are craving to go back! The restaurant has a very warm and relaxed vibe to it. When I… Read More My Love for Seasoned Vegan

The event of the year has now come to the theaters and it was a glorious event. While probably on pace to come close or equal the pace of the first Marvel’s The Avengers movie, it wasn’t without some blemishes. While…
After a very long work week I decided to take the girls into the city to mix errand (picking up mommy’s contacts) with pleasure. Today we were in for a treat. My eye doctor’s office is two blocks from the White House so I thought a lovely picnic across from the White House would be… Read More Enjoying the 70th Anniversary of the Allied Victory in Europe
