I have happily been a stay-at-home-mom for more than three years. I haven’t worked in a classroom since the school year ended in 2011, just a couple months before Julia was born. I have greatly enjoyed being home with my kids all of this time. We’ve created quite …

When I met The Duke, I wasn’t really into sweets. Sure, I thought cookies, cakes, and candies tasted fine, but I never craved them. I’d bake for my college roommates without even sampling the cookie dough. What sane person does that? Passing up perfectly delicious …

1. I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I blinked and my baby girl is a week shy of three years old. We made a chain to count down the number of days until her birthday. Goodness gracious, this sweet thing is my heart and soul. 2. We’ve decided not to have a bi …
