Creepy costumes, chilling decorations, our favorite candy-filled night is just around the corner. Here are some simple tips to make sure everyone stays safe and happy this Halloween.

It's hard to believe that Halloween is a few short weeks away. Halloween has always been a fun time for our family to get dressed up and act silly. When Little J was a baby, we stayed at home and passed out candy. It was always exciting to seeing those cute little faces show up at the front door; eager to get to the goodies. But now that Little J is older, we like to get out there and go trick-or-treating as a family. However, it's not lost on me that times have changed.


20 Incredibly Delicious Soups That Will Keep you Warm


Fall is officially here and I'm celebrating by sharing my favorite warm and cozy soups to get you in the mood. These soups are not only delicious, but they are a quick and easy solution to keeping your family fed without breaking the bank or spending a ridiculous amount of time in the kitchen dicing, chopping and preparing. In fact, many of these recipes are crock-pot friendly, so once you do the prep, you can walk away and let you crock-pot handle the rest. Definitely my kind of meal.

So check out the soups below as we prepare to head in to the chilly season. Bon App├ętit

Happy September Dear Friends,

Now that Little J has finally flown the nest and is settling into Kindergarten, I'm finding myself with a bit of extra time on my hands. Work keeps me fairly busy, but I've been revisiting some resolutions I set for myself at the beginning of the year, most notably my fitness goals.
