Latte Love and my favorite blogs…

The kids are in school, my husband is at work and my 9th grader is on the computer doing school work. This is my time.  The quietness of the house and the tapping of the keyboard is comforting to me.  I know it sounds a little strange but it truly does. My mornings  are special to me. Some are a little more hectic than others and in turn, my “healthy” choices for breakfast are a little lame. There are times {Read More}

Halloween Haunt at Knott’s Scary Farm

Last week, I attended the much anticipated 40th anniversary of Knott’s Scary Farm’s Halloween Haunt.  I had a blast. For someone who hasn’t been there in almost 20 years, I really had a great time.
