Valentine’s Date Ideas for All Weather

February 1, 2018

With Valentine’s Day being in February and with weather being unpredictable, sometimes it is tough to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day date.  Whether you just met the person of your dreams, have been dating for a while, or are married with children, these fun date ideas are perfect in the rain, snow, or on a sunny day. So, if you’re looking for something different from dinner and a movie, here are some ways to make an ordinary date, extraordinary whether you have just a few hours after work, or the whole weekend.

Spend a Day at the Spa

How to Make Your Home Smell Like Christmas

December 23, 2017

Your house is probably already overflowing with the sights (i.e. decorations) and sounds (a la Jingle Bells on loop) of Christmas, but what about the smells? Surprisingly enough, scent is the sense most closely related to memory, far more than sight, touch, or sound. So don’t deny your nose the simple joys of Christmas this season and prepare to make memories your family will remember for years to come.

Christmas Cookies, Candy Canes & Greenery

Add real greenery to your decor.

Especially if you don’t have a real tree in your home, you’re probably in need of some serious earthly scents. A traditional Christmas centerpiece will do a lot more than just look beautiful on your dinner table, it will fill the room with the sweet smells of fir and cedar.
