What Does Spring Mean to You?

In For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

My Mom always believed in me and helped me to believe in myself! This is something she would always tell me: I apologize: I haven't blogged in a while, as you may know it has been a very busy winter for me!! It's usually my busiest time anyway, but throw launching my first book on top of that, and I’ve been a little out of commission with everything else. My book was a huge labor of love, which I really wrote for YOU, so I wanted to make sure I covered EVERYTHING in my story to help take your idea and turn it into a million-dollar reality.

Organizing the Garage & All Those Scary Outdoor Storage Spaces!

In For the Home Talk, In the Garden, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone! When you think of spring cleaning, does the garage come to mind? Or maybe your backyard shed? I tend to forget about my garage until it’s impossible to find anything, the piles start tumbling, and there really isn’t an inch of space to fit that one last basketball. Then, I have to organize—and more importantly, weed out the stuff. Out of all the storage places at my house, I think the garage is one of the toughest things to tidy, considering how many things we really do need—not to mention it’s typically a “man space.” Over the years, ho...
