When my now-teenagers were little, I would dutifully – and constantly – take their photos with my camera, have them developed, write the dates on the back, and place them neatly in an album. Nowadays, I only need to scroll through my iPhone to “remember when.” But, I still like to have prints of many […]

As a Georgian, there is nothing more patriotic than enjoying a plump, juicy peach. Although we claim it as our own, this lovely fruit dates back centuries to its origins in China and symbolizes luck, abundance, and protection. Since August is National Peach Month, and Georgia is the Peach State, let’s celebrate! Here are a […]

With the school year coming to a close, and BBQs on the horizon, parties are on the forefront of many of our minds. The tricky part is that with 1 in every 13 kids having a food allergy, the menu can be a bit tricky. Everyone wants to know, “Well, what can I bring?” – […]
My family just returned from a magical week at Disney World! It was fun, memorable, and exhausting. We definitely spent a pretty penny for all that magic. But, we did NOT break the bank. How? Here are my 4 tips for doing Disney on a budget: Don’t Stay on Disney Property. I know. I just […]
A Family-Friendly Free Ride in Atlanta I have many goals in life, contrary to what my children think. Among them: to be on the Ellen show during the Christmas season, to once again fit into my prom dress from Senior year, and to finally learn who let the dogs out (who, who, who, who?). Obviously, […]
Mornings. You either love them or you loathe them. I am the latter. Let me paint a very real picture for you. I am one of those that hits snooze at least 3 times (my husband loves this about me). And if for some ungodly reason we have no coffee or creamer in this house, […]
Nothing says I love you like fondue except, maybe, fondue times two! Why decide between a velvety Velveeta-free pot of cheese bathing in wine and a crock of rich dark chocolate decadence when you can have both? And both are equally adored by little, big, male, & female taste buds alike.
Fondue for Valentine’s Day is probably as cliche as the girls-only fondue dinner tradition that started one February 14th back in college. Admittedly, I was a little mournful for the passing of said tradition when I met my husband and had reason to put on something besides expandable sweatpants for the holiday. Not that I would trade in my happy marriage for cheese and chocolate, but… Seasons change and, much like on New Year’s Eve, I now find myself back in said sweatpants, celebrating with both the big and little man in my life.
Truth be told, I have moved the fondue tradition to the Oscars; perhaps I’ll make a heart-shaped meatloaf like my Mom routinely made this year. I highly recommend you host a fondue party, however. It’s the perfect way to celebrate those you love this month, be it your girlfriends, husband, children, or just yourself! Have each guest bring their favorite accompaniment for each fondue and get dipping.
