Pumpkin Patchin’!



On Sunday my besite Michele and I grabbed our kiddies and headed out to Snyder’s Family Farm for something I hadn’t done probably since I was a kid.  Pumpkin picking!

Though much farther than we thought it would be, Snyder’s is worth the trip.  Packed with crazy fun things to do with kids (other than the obvious pumpkin picking-which we didn’t do much of) like a bouncy pillow, puppet shows, hay rides, and a corn maze, there’s enough for a full day of ‘farm-tastic fun’.  A tag line I heard repeated a few times…

Happy National Taco Day! Two Recipes That We Love

The smell. The taste. The desire for it would perpetuate into my adult years. Only now I sip Americanos or espressos with dairy free milk.


The debate around whether coffee is good or bad for you is supported by several arguments on both sides. In my experience, less is more. I am a fan of coffee and could not imagine my life without it. It makes early mornings tolerable because it’s warm and soothing. I couldn’t imagine catching up with friends at a local café or taking a business meeting without the presence of a cup of Joe.


For each reason coffee may be considered “bad” for you, there is a “but wait”:
