Happy Fourth of July! Today is our beloved country’s 239th birthday!
I am so proud and constantly awestruck that this experiment in democracy is still going strong. Its had its rough spots, including its conception based in paranoia of rule by one, some not so pretty moments, manifest destiny in the West and the imprisonment of Alice Paul, and… Continue reading
So last year I had a brilliant idea if I say so myself to change things up in our family and do a brunch instead of a dinner for our family’s Easter celebration. I shared last year all of the set up leading to my brunch but as Easter approaches I’d like to revisit it. I actually do this kind… Continue reading
Last year I hosted our annual family Easter get together and I decided on a brunch. I wanted to make it easy for every one who was coming but also wanted to make it special too. One of the ways I did so was to place an edible bird’s nests filled with an edible bird and eggs at each… Continue reading

The Annual Serar Family Christmas Party was this weekend and I finished up the last of my ornament projects just in time. And they were beautifully hung on display on my tree and my mantle for all to enjoy. My hubby even proudly showed them off, which was awesome since I had abuse my poor backside by not giving it… Continue reading
On my posting day, another “funny” trip in my 2014 journey took place around 8am that morning. And when I say trip, I actually mean trip. It all started pleasant enough. I had my little baby girl Yorkie – all whopping four and half pounds of her curled under my right arm and my left hand securely on the stair… Continue reading
By now I hope everyone has enjoyed their turkey, been stuffed with stuffing and got their delicious piece of pumpkin pie loaded with whipped cream. I hope you were all surrounded by those you love and that the mood was one of peace and love.
