There are a lot of things that make living in a small town special. But one of the most special things is the way that your neighbors celebrate the holidays.
For many years, my town had a home decorating contest. I don’t know what happened to it – maybe it still exists but is such a [...]

So this nerd walks into a bar…
And apparently, some woman tries to pick up on him. Yes, that nerd was my husband and yes, this is his story and he’s sticking to it.  Last night, while watching hockey with a group of his nerd friends after work, Harry had a woman hit on him and [...]

But we have a new microwave. The family will survive.

No shirt, no shoes, big problem

Every marriage requires patience. And I’m positive that mine requires more patience than most. Harry and I are complete and total opposites. We don’t have the same interests. For example, Harry actually only has five pairs of shoes. Just five. And he only really wears one pair. One. I know it’s hard to believe, but [...]

I’m not obsessed with cupcakes

Every once in a while I get a reminder about why I married Harry. He’s the complete and total opposite of me. Take this morning, for example. I was discussing ordering a few cupcakes from the cupcake bakery for this weekend when some friends come by the house. And Harry turns to me and says, [...]
