A Decorator’s Dilemma: Part 1

It’s that time of year again and I’m not talking about holiday drinks and Christmas cheer. I’m talking about the pressure to get my house decorated with the right wreath for the front door and all the other Christmas paraphernalia for the table and the tree. No one understands what we moms go through so that our families can feel the spirit of Christmas. I’m sure [...]

Fall Garage Makeover, Part 1: Ideas to Get You Started

Fall has arrived in the great state of Texas. It’s a season that Texans don’t usually know has arrived until the coffee shops start advertising pumpkin spice lattes. It’s been nice to enjoy some rain and cooler temps for a change without jumping right into winter or prolonging summer. For most states, fall is a chillier season that warms us up to the fact that the holidays [...]

A Place Where Creativity Flows

Have you ever had a creative business idea? Maybe you want to start a mechanic shop? Perhaps it’s a new engine design or an innovative new software company? These are all great ideas, but just where would you have the space to execute them? You can’t rent a place downtown because that’s too costly and too much upkeep.

My Messy Neighbors

While pulling into my driveway the other day I was disturbed to see my neighbors’ garage door open and their cars parked in the driveway. I live in one of those quiet neighborhoods that look empty except for about 12 hours one day a week when all the trash bins are lined up at the end of each driveway. On weekends we take walks with our dogs [...]

Really, men just have a [...]

Clutter Intervention

I’m very worried about my friend’s safety and the safety of her entire family. I don’t want to offend her, but her garage has become a hazard. It should have yellow caution tape around it, but instead she sends her kids unattended out there to search for their toys. If they ever turn up missing, you can bet they will be found buried under bikes and [...]

Nicole’s Place Part 2

July is shaping up to be a big month for me. I am looking forward to snorkeling and sunbathing on my upcoming vacation. As much as I love the beach, beaches mean swimsuits and swimsuits mean I am pretty much on a water only diet until then if I am going to be in shape for a week in the water.    This month is also [...]

Fireworks, BBQ and Making a Real Difference: A Safe Harbor for Survivors of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

As I look forward to celebrating our nation’s independence, I am compelled this year to do more than just BBQ, soak up the sun and go to bed after watching an extravaganza of fireworks. A fire has been sparked in me for something more.     With summer in full bloom as evidenced by the children playing outside, I enjoy the sounds of their carefree laughter. It [...]
