This week marks my two year blogiversary, and in celebration I would like to cordially invite you all to attend my blog party this weekend!

It has been quite a while since I last hosted a blog party, and I absolutely love them! It will start on Saturday (please don’t post anything here), which gives you five days to select your favourite post. For those of you that have never participated in one before, the rules are simple:

1. Choose your favourite post from your own blog. The subject of the post can be anything you like – blogging, food, parenting, life, travel, thoughts, photography… Note: This should be only one post at a time or it will get sent straight to the ‘spam’ folder and I may not be able to find you for a while.

2. Paste the link to your post in the comment section of…

WordPress Milestone

This morning's post marked my 200th post on WordPress! The badge popped up and so did my eyebrows! Even though I started my WP account three years ago, it wasn't until September 2014 that I got serious, then joined Blogging University 101.  From there I followed lots of blogs, liked a LOT of posts and …

Ick! My Spidey-Sense is Tingling

Embrace the Ick SPIDERS. The very word conjures up the creepy, crawly, heebie-jeebies. My mom taught my brother and me, as kids, to love tarantulas and snakes. We had a terrarium that was home to those critters, and yes, they had names, but they escape me for the moment. And, no, the critters never escaped. …

Got Gloom Stress? How to Beat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

This article is very timely, as I posted earlier today on “Ban Gray Days.” Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, can be insidious and you may suffer from mild to severe depression-like symptoms and not even realize what it wrong.

Shortly after the birth of my oldest daughter in late January 1985, I started feeling out of sorts. I thought it was just a little post-partum depression, but it turned out to be SAD. Once I recognized the symptoms from a magazine article, I went out and got some sunlight.

And I bought a new lipstick. That always helps!

Seriously, please take a look at this information.

Healthy Happy Loving Life!

Hands up, anyone who feels slower, more down, or more blah during the winter! Or on gray days? Have you been feeling gloomy when the weather is, well, gloomy?  You have Gloom Stress!  And maybe you are one of the estimated 10 million people who have Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. People with SAD report symptoms typically in the winter, when days are shorter. These symptoms include feeling sluggish, feeling “down”, lacking energy, and craving carbohydrates. People who eat for energy while affected by SAD may, sadly, gain weight. A side effect of feeling sluggish may be the tendency to exercise less, leading to a decrease in metabolic efficiency and therefore a further decrease in mood and vitality.

Depression is when your engine isn’t powering up. It might take a few pushes, an oil change, or…

Number Sightings: A Moment in Time

A Moment in Time How often do you see this number? Does this number in the photo above jump out at you at random moments? The number can only appear twice daily on a digital clock, so the odds may be pretty good. I estimate that I see this exact number on my clock in …

Tools for Bloggers

Have you ever seen the info-graphics found on Pinterest and elsewhere on the web? I certainly have pinned enough of them to my boards. In an effort to create my own, I came across a free program called Piktochart. As you can see, I took some basic information, grabbed a couple of images and used …

Why Volunteering is a Must

A really great post about Volunteering by @newchapter.

New Chapter

101Volunteering is widely spread nowadays all over the world, doing and giving something to someone you often don’t even know without expecting anything in return. It is a controversial issue which implicates many factors and in this post I want to touch the positive aspects of volunteering.

1. Pushing your boundaries
Volunteering often includes doing something we wouldn’t normally do, varying, for example, from ‘traditional’ activities like building houses in Africa to more ‘eccentric’ ones like feeding sharks in the Pacific. This wide range of possibilities comes
