What is it about hot cocoa with mini-marshmallows?
How it warmed your fingers and made your insides feel all toasty?
Back then life was simpler, less hectic. There weren’t so many items on your calendar.

Want to get the kids off their hand-held devices?
Originally a New Yorker (the Upstate version), I grew up in a large family and loved playing with my siblings, especially during those long, cold winters when we would all be stuck inside, driving my poor mother crazy while Dad was at work. I seized that opportunity to assist my siblings in more ways than even they wanted and earned the nickname of Mother 2.
After years of the joys and torments of raising us, our real mother still won’t put marshmallows in our hot cocoa, so I have to sneak them in when she isn’t looking. She’s says they’re not real food (Let’s see what the experts say about that!).
A survivor at heart I had to do something to increase the ‘fun factor’ in the years I taught elementary and middle school. My solution to alleviate the hum drum of the daily grind was to get my students to perform puppet shows. It wasn’t in the curriculum, but that’s okay because at the end of the year, what do you think was everybody’s favorite activity? (I had them fill out a survey just to prove it!)
Co-host of the radio show, Wake up, Louisiana!, and creator of Beautiful Minds, Chesterton’s Corner, Books & Movies and Hearth & Home, I love helping people simplify their lives, lose weight, get organized and bravely go where no puppet has gone before!
I live in Baton Rouge, LA with my very Southern husband, Steven.
But, enough about me…
How can I help you get more out of your life?
