Making the Everyday a Holiday

It really is the simple things that make life special.  My husband and I had a whim to make the 9th of every month Kissy Day.  Every family member (pets, too) on the 9th every month gets nearly attacked with sweet little kisses.  We have been doing it for probably a decade now (maybe more) […]

How to Be Happy in One Simple Step
