It can be found here: The Best Time of Day to Exercise, Take Vitamins,and More Health Moves
The article discusses our natural body rhythms and how we can use them to our advantage. I found it very interesting because I certainly notice ups and downs throughout my day. I am not generally a morning coffee drinker because I am …
Has anyone ever made a long distance or cross-country move?
We are currently attempting to move our lives from California to the DC area and it is proving rather difficult. The cost for a U-haul truck or trailer is astronomical. On the move to CA we were able to rent a trailer because we didn’t have any furniture yet and all of our items were new in boxes or in storage here.
Many people suggested we just ship everything as freight but …
Recently, I had my mother-in-law and aunt visiting and wanted to give them some fresh flowers for their beach rental. With just a few nice bunches of flowers, I was able to put together several beautiful bouquets for under $20. The vases were already part of my floral collection and the ribbon was from my existing stash.

Roasting is currently my favorite method of cooking both potatoes and broccoli. The steps are quite simple.
The potato recipe I invented to go along with my adaptations of two broccoli recipes.

The following is a tale of an eventful evening and a few valuable lessons learned.
When I started making dinner, I thought to myself, “Should I change out of my dress first?” I pretty much always wear an apron and it seemed pretty silly to change into a whole new outfit just to cook, especially considering the mountain of laundry that always seems to be building in the corner of our bedroom. So I left my brand new J. Crew sundress …
Hello! My name is Camerin. Currently, I reside with my husband in the picturesque Central Coast of California but I grew up in Indiana. During college, I had the opportunity to live in the Netherlands and travel extensively throughout much of Europe. To paint a move vivid picture of who I am, here are some things I enjoy:
• cut flowers, spider plants, sweet peas, snapdragons, abundant roses
• thrift store bargains, garage sale treasures, and ‘rescuing’ junk
• coasters, candlesticks, napkins, tablecloths, …
