The Psychology of Empty Spaces

In stereotypical fashion, I'm finding myself overwhelmed by the urge to spring clean as we welcome the sunshine and warm weather. I'm switching the girls' seasonal clothing (sooner than I would have liked since all four of them seem to have gone through a growth spurt in the last month!), cleaning all of the spaces…

Question of the Day: Have You Filed Your Taxes?

With just a little over a month to go until Tax Day on April 15th (also the 11th anniversary of when my hubby and I started dating, back before Tax Day really meant anything to either of us!), I'm embarrassed to admit that I have barely even started my tax preparation. I'm hoping to make…
