When you live in a 90-year-old house, drafts are common.
Advent is my favorite season of the church year, and I'm always looking for ways to celebrate it in my home.
One of the things I love about my employer: for the last couple of years, The News-Gazette has encouraged its employees to sign up on teams to ring bells for Salvation Army kettles.
Chances are, you're sick of dressing and mashed potatoes by now (did you try Thanksgiving Pizza?), so I thought I'd post this recipe that Urbana resident Christine Canfield sent me the other day.
After spending a good chunk of a weekend working on our fireplace headboard,
I've been admiring all things retro for several years now, and for as long as I've known about them, I've wanted an aluminum Christmas tree.
I've seen them in antique shops, but they seem to always be labeled "not for sale."
I started prepping yesterday afternoon the dishes I'm bringing to my parents' Thanksgiving celebration Thursday.
After Julie's post about finding gratitude even when things seem hopeless, I started thinking about my sweet husband.
Update: For easy reference, I've also added Lisa Selig's DeLuxe Pecan Pie recipe to this list.
I know I may be the only person to ever say this, but I love the grocery store in the days preceeding Thanksgiving.
There's such a hustle and bustle, and I love to nosily peek at what's in other people's carts. (There's a reason I'm a reporter, after all.) And I was proven right this weekend: the kindness of strangers really comes out.
