Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 21 years now. Living the firelife has been full of trials, heartbreak and constant change...that I would never trade!

As a busy momma I'm in love with cooking, eating, movie addiction, tv lover that fights the constant health battle and strives to run my half marathons.

All with a glass of wine in my hand. Preferable a Washington wine ;)
What is your blogging philosophy?
I blog like I talk. I'm real. I'm honest and I'm probably going to swear. My blogging philosophy is to write as if we are sitting on the couch gabbing.
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

I know what you mean Val, I've been meaning to be more active here as well. While I was watching Kayden nap so his Mom could nap too I did a bit of profile visiting and friending. LOL

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
