    Friendship Day

    August 2nd, 2013 admin

    I believe in showing appreciation to our loved ones every chance we get. Small things even, like saying “I love you” or sending a quick text in the morning to tell someone “Have a great day!”. We shouldn’t only show our love on holidays that are specifically for an individual. But if we’re honest with [...]

    I Scream, You Scream….

    July Birthdays

    July 8th, 2013 Konnie Kitt

    I was born, smack-dab in the middle of July. Don’t believe me? Try the 15th. I always loved having a birthday in the summer because the possibilities for something fun to do or party ideas were endless.

    Red Rose Day

    June 12th, 2013 admin

    June 12 is Red Rose Day. I got to wondering why red roses are considered to be the classic, the ultimate symbol of love, and how such a connotation came to exist. The red rose is the one instantly associated with one common meaning, more so than any other flower. Red roses historically have been featured in many prominent [...]

    Flag Day

    June 10th, 2013 admin

    June 14 is Flag Day in the United States, where we commemorate the adoption of the United States flag, which happened on this day in 1777. Coincidentally, the same resolution of the Second Continental Congress also created the “American Continental Army,” so the United States Army also commemorates their “birthday” on this day. Though not [...]

    Say Cheese!

    March 11th, 2013 Alicia

    When I think of the perfect food, there is only one that comes to mind… cheese! It can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner AND dessert. It can be paired with wines, added to sauces, melted into fondue, topped with fruit, put in sandwiches, mixed with pasta and put in desserts.  Not only that, but [...]
