Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 30, 2015 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

I read a blog post last week from a mom who was complaining about her kids during the summer. They never put anything away. They dropped their clothes everywhere. The mom had to drive them to their various activities. I kept waiting for the blogger to say how much she loves having her children around, […]

Easy Summer Grilling Freezer Meals

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 23, 2015 in Family, Food, Moms |

  Summer is the season that I fire up the grill on a daily basis. Our eating out decreases and our eating as a family around the patio table increases. It really is my favorite time of the year. But this does not mean that I am any less busy. I still need easy meals that everyone will eat. I make […]

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on December 29, 2014 in Family, Food, Holidays, life, Moms |

Now that the dust, pine needles, sugar high, gift tearing frenzy is over I can take time to applaud myself and say that the holiday I designed this year was perfect for me. Did I just say it was for me? Yes that is right. We design holidays for other people and what we imagine […]

Easy Summer Grilling

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 3, 2014 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

    I have a confession to make: our family has been eating out way too much. Sometimes it is easier with all of us on different schedules to meet somewhere for dinner than it is for me to think about what to make for dinner. But I missed making dinner. I missed my kids […]

Organizing Is The Spice Of Life

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on May 27, 2014 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

Nothing gets me more excited than organizing! I love walking into a client’s home and seeing the chaos and knowing that I am trusted to make it all better. I see it as a puzzle that was dumped on the floor….I start by sorting the edges…then grouping like items together and start moving pieces around […]

Freezer Clean Out

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on February 8, 2013 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

After I cleaned out my fridge I knew the freezer was not far behind. I found the freezer much easier to clean and organize for some reason, and I am not sure why. Maybe it was because I knew some of the items have been in my freezer since the ice age, or at least […]
