Fashion Downsized – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I don’t know a whole lot of little girls who don’t like to play dress up. At the tender ages of two and six, my girls already have strong opinions about what to wear.

But with today’s trends of mixed prints, ruffles, and even tutus as daywear, every day clothing can let them feel as much like a princess anything that comes out of the costume box.

  • When I was young, my mom always made our marinara from scratch. Truthfully, she made just about everything from scratch – and I just grew up thinking that was normal. I didn’t really realize that marinara was readily available in a jar until I was older. And so, I’ve always preferred the taste of the… [Continue Reading]
