My not so home improvement moment

Home improvement is something I would never describe myself as being "good" at. Some people have a natural ability for transforming a room or even an entire dwelling from something worn and dull into something bright and beautiful. I admire those types of people.

Coziness befits this town

Celebrating Parents’ Day

Yesterday, Sunday, July 28 was Parents' Day! Designated by Congress in 1994, the fourth Sunday of July is the day each year that we celebrate parents in the United States.
