The Inner Battle of Free-Range Parenting Versus Helicopter Parenting is Real

The Inner Battle of Free-Range Parenting Versus Helicopter Parenting is Real

For years I have read article after article about free-range parenting versus helicopter parenting. I read them over and over trying to figure out how I could be the best mom possible. Although I always leaned away from being the helicopter-mom I found that there are times it can be necessary; as parents, we all should know... 

Why is Turning 40 So Difficult?

Why is Turning 40 So Difficult?

Let’s be honest — I spent the past year dreading last month. Yes, a full 365 days of dreading January 2016. Possibly even longer if I think about it. Just the thought of January 2016 made me cringe. Why? Because it was the month I was going to turn 40. Ugh! Under normal circumstances (all the other years before 40)...

39 Lessons in 39 Years

Image via Flickr by Beth Punches This weekend, I turned 39! Although many people enjoy celebrating their birthdays, I don’t. I don’t like the attention and focus on me. I don’t like getting older. And most importantly (this year), I don’t like turning any age with the number nine in it. It’s not... 

Personal Space Please

Personal Space Please

  What the heck is wrong with some people? I realize this is a bit of a broad question. A question, that if you are like me, elicits a giant list. A list that continually grows. And, unlike my other lists (to-do lists and such), nothing ever gets checked off or scratched off. Instead, it just grows, festers, and becomes... 

Attack of the Flying Rats

Attack of the Flying Rats

I went to the park the other day to eat my lunch. Even though it was a beautiful day, I wasn’t really in the mood to eat outside. It was just that one of my favorite things about traveling with my husband on his business trips is eating alone. Not! I hate it with a passion and avoid it at all costs. I’d rather go...

Having a love for Apple products and recently adding an iPad to my collection makes this post a perfect read for me.  Although I have not had the time to write about must have apps for the iPad (like I did for must have iPhone apps), my guest writer from Accredited... 

How to Celebrate a Non-Valentines Day.

How to Celebrate a Non-Valentines Day.

I am sort of the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day or maybe a better description is the Valentine’s Day Grinch. If I could, I would probably go around to all of the stores and bag up all of the Valentine’s Day stuff and burn it. And no it is not because I lack “love” in my life or do not cherish the man... 

Redefining Moments

Redefining Moments

Contributor: dan, www.freedigitalphotos.net Are you the same person you have always been? Are you the same today as you were ten years ago? Do you wake up each morning and walk through life taking the exact steps you took the day before? Or are you a piece of clay that is continually being molded–shaped and caressed into...

Top Ten Reasons Not to Pejazzle or Scrotazzle

Silly boy, bling is for girls Mornings in the Dahle house start out pretty much the same each day–My husband and I wake up, he goes to the kitchen and pours us both a cup of coffee, he brings the cups back to bed where we sit and enjoy our coffee while scanning through our iPhones. I generally check the weather and email...
