Silent Sunday #41

Happy Silent Sunday #41.  I'm not quite sure how it got to be Sunday again.  The days have been flying by.  I wish I could say that I've had the opportunity to enjoy each and every day.  I actually feel more like the days go by so fast that it's all a blur. I really need to take the time to enjoy my days. We're currently at our vacation house in California.  I'm probably one of the worst at Continue Reading

I love Continue Reading

A Holiday Gift Recommendation

Today I have a holiday gift recommendation for you from the technology category.  I'm totally excited about this new HP tablet that I purchased from the Microsoft Store. I'm not gonna lie, I've had iPads and Apple devices for the past 6 years or so.  However when I saw this new tablet a few weeks ago and it's price, I had to buy one for myself.  It's one of the most affordable tablets on the Continue Reading
