Traveling on a tight budget

My family makes it a point to take at least one, if not several family vacations a year. We love the bonding that is created by spending several hours in a car together, exploring a new city and staying up late chatting in a hotel room. Now, with that being said, it is not easy, nor cheap, to travel. It takes a lot of planning, a lot of saving and a lot of budgeting to make it happen. Here are some tips when it comes to traveling on a tight budget.

5 life lessons

I'm a little over 6 months away from turning the big 3-0, and I've taken a lot of time to ponder on these last 10 years and what lessons I've learned, trials I've overcome and how I have changed overall as a person. A lot of big things happened in these past ten years, getting married, having three children, graduating college, starting a career, becoming a stay-at-home mom, leaving it all to pursue our dreams, moving cross country and shifting our focus. Through all of this I've learned a little about life and a lot ...

8 things women do that annoy men

I love observing people and listening in on conversations in order to get ideas for my articles. Some of the most interesting topics that people like to talk about are the differences between men and women. The other day I did a survey asking men about things that women do that drive them crazy, and I received a ton of responses. (It was obviously a topic they were passionate about.) Here are some of their answers:

Love milestones

Do you remember that first kiss, the first time you held hands or when you finally said "I love you?" These are just a few special milestones that commemorate relationships. In the 11 years I've been with my husband, we've shared countless milestones that we enjoy reminiscing about once in a while. For example, the ability to speak with our eyes after a couple months of knowing one another was an important milestone in our relationship. It highlighted how quickly our relationship had grown.

Best marriage tips

Marriage tips come in all shapes and sizes, from the desperately needed to the unasked for. A lot of times we know what we should do, but prefer to do what we "want" to do. In other words, we cave into our prodding anger or false pride. Or we act in ways we know won't bring a good result, but we go for it anyway. It's a lot like banging the TV on its side because the WIFI isn't working. Really? Does that ever work? It is always better to figure things out before reacting.

Parenting mistakes

I was impatient with my five-year-old the other day. All day long, it seemed, he dawdled, whined and did everything in his power to annoy me. I finally reached a breaking point trying to get out the door. I barked at him to "hurry up and put on his coat." Not missing a beat, my precocious little kid barked back at me, "Mom! Don't you know kids have bad days too?"

Fixing relationships

It's not pleasant to admit I've committed my share of mistakes. Unfortunately, many of my mistakes affected not only me, but those close and dear to me. My mistakes came from a selfish place. I wasn't thinking of consequences or of hurting my relationships with family members. As time passed, the mistakes caught up with me. I learned some tough lessons, and if the opportunity had presented itself then, I would have rectified each wrongdoing in an instant-but it was too late.
