Meal Planning: Four Steps to Saving Money by Cooking At Home

A few years ago my husband and I were thinking of buying a house. Because we lived in one of the most expensive parts of the country, we realized we were going to have to tighten our belts a bit if we wanted to buy what we were really after. Going through our budget, the most obvious cut we could make was to our dining-out expenses. And although we thought it would increase our grocery budget a bit, it turned

The Easiest Home Decorating Trick for Bringing Life into a Home

When I moved into my new home in Germany, it took some time to get our stuff here. There is something so wonderful about having familiar things when you’re in a foreign land. It gave me a new appreciation for things. After the last picture was hung, it became clear that something wasn’t right. Our house seemed unfinished somehow. Then it dawned on me that we’d had to leave all our houseplants with friends, because even if they could somehow

Getting crafty down South: New Orleans

June 21 marked the official beginning of summer time and that means it’s time to travel! I don’t know about you, but even though I love to travel any time of the year, there’s something special about doing it in the summer. Maybe it’s because as a grown up, you feel like you still get that little summer vacation. Or maybe it’s just because it’s nice out. Nothing screams “ROAD TRIP!” like a gorgeous sunny day. In the spirit of

Overcoming WWKIP anxiety

When Jordana first told us about her anniversary celebration, I was super excited. What fun to write about goals we’d accomplished or fears we’d overcome! It seems like I’d had plenty of those in my knitting career so far. Heck, everything seemed to be an accomplished goal, right? But I saw something else looming on the calendar for June: World Wide Knit in Public Day. I had planned on writing about that as well. It was then that I realized what
