Make Plans for Summer 2016...Local Museums Offer Fun Camps, Classes & Special Activities

With summer just around the corner, signing up kids for fun summer camps is heating up right about now.  Instead of the traditional camp concepts, parents are encouraged to consider local museums and destinations that have unique and memorable hands-on activities planned.

Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

The New Year is almost here!  Tonight we will be ringing in 2016, and begin to start thinking about packing away our holiday decorations (if you have not done so already).  

Now is a great time to really look at all the decorations that you have, from tree ornaments to center pieces, and decide if you really really love it and want to continue to live with it.  We all tend to accumulate more than what we truly need, so take a close look.  Make room for sentimental items that invoke wonderful memories.  Every year, we hang my husband's grandmother's hand painted ornaments on our tree.  They don't match, are pink and blue, don't sparkle anymore, but our tree would not be complete without a few of these precious ornaments that are well over 100 years old.

GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

GLOVES AND MITTENS - A WINTER WORKOUT ESSENTIAL!

Chilly temps don't stand a chance against these NIKE® women's Vapor Flash running gloves! Enhanced with wind- and water-resistant fabric on the palm and cuff, they'll keep you going strong in blustery conditions. A touchscreen-compatible thumb and forefinger make it convenient to access your phone, and strategically placed moisture-wicking gussets prevent overheating.

A key factor for me is to make sure my gloves and/or mittens have moisture-wicking properties.  Don't forget that warm cap and socks too!
