Sure, we all dream of the time and money to jet set for a weekend getaway. But why wait when you can do it at home? Here is my favorite way to have a weekend at home that kicks off Monday with the “I just got back” feeling of relaxation and happiness.

I guess the closest thing I have to a family heirloom is a gorgeous, ruby red punch bowl that I use now as a fruit bowl. I value the gem-like qualities of the bowl the same way I would if it were a real ruby, say, in a super-sized cocktail ring that was left to me.
My favorite part of fall and winter is that I have plenty of excuses to entertain friends and family. And what’s a party without the food? But with all the reasons to gather around food and drink, it’s important to remember to stay in budget – for your wallet (and waist’s) sake! So, every fall […]
