It’s gonna be quiet around here this week

When I first started blogging, there was one rule of blogging that all serious bloggers followed: post often and post consistently. Not posting wasn't done unless it was a family emergency, and taking time off required all kinds of finagling -- scheduling guest posts and reposts and writing ahead.

Jackson Jeremiah {Six Weeks Old}

Six weeks old. How is that even possible? Actually, if we're going to be technical about it, he'll be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Seriously?

Support a Local Small Business with GoDaddy’s No WebSitis Contest!

As a business owner myself, I love to support women-owned businesses locally and around the world -- by buying handmade jewelry from artisans like Lisa Leonard and 31 Bits rather than factory-made accessories, choosing local businesses over big box stores and so on. According to the 2013 State of Women-Owned Businesses report, the number of…
