Why do we get so sad when a musical icon dies? Because our lives and their music are so greatly intertwined.
2016 has been a tough year for the music industry. We've lost some truly great artists - artists that have moved, influenced and defined music and musical eras. This year, which isn't even half over yet, we've said goodbye to top talents which have included Glenn Frey, Maurice White, David Bowie and now Prince. Most of us have never met these musical icons in person. We may have seen them perform in concert, or on MTV (back when it trul...

Dining out with young children... to allow the screen or not to allow the screen? This is the question.
I have learned in my 18 years as a parent never to say never. Long before I had my own children I had all the answers. I knew exactly what I would do and what I wouldn't. Then one by one my children arrived and I tossed all that nonsense out the door. Should "screens" be allowed at the table? In short, no. But I've learned that there's an exception to this rule too. In my own home I do not allow iPhones, Pods or Pads at the table. Nor...

Architecture Crush... the A-frame
The iconic triangular style home called the A-frame was a popular form of American architecture that surfaced in the 1930s and peaked in the 1950s and 60s. This mid-century tee-pee style of architecture, defined by it's steep roof, front and rear gables and deep-set eaves, seems to be enjoying a new-found popularity. Numerous windows, both large and small, can be found on the front and rear facades allowing the interiors to be graced by...

 A must for those who love barns, architecture, interiors and history.
As we make great strides to slow down and return to basics, to bygone days and simpler times, many are embracing the American Barn as more than just a symbolic, but embracing it as the modern home. At Home in the American Barn is a beautiful tribute to the wonderful architecture of our past reconditioned to become the sought after residential spaces of today. Those of you who know me and or follow me on social media know that I am co...

  "I believe in pink!"
I happen to adore pink. I prefer the bright, bold in your face pink. Dramatic shades that push the buttons between comfort and edgy. A ballet slipper hue pushed to the edge of safety, paired with a strong masculine color or print - so that it screams out "Look at me, I'm no wallflower!" I love a pink that dares to be different with a spirit that's both adventurous and dangerous. I go weak at the knees with deep shades that shake thing...

Think outside the chocolate box this Valentine's Day - Gifts for the food and drinks enthusiast
It's a day that has become synonymous with chocolate, flowers and cards. Cupid aims his arrow... And hopefully it doesn't miss! It's a day of love and a day of romance. In the mid 1700's it was customary to give your love a small token and a handwritten letter. By the mid 1900's with the advancement of "modern" printing technology handwritten notes were to be replaced with pre-printed cards. We now refer to this day as a Hallmark hol...
