After almost a full year of COVID-19 restrictions in the U.S., we’ve made it to Valentine’s Day again...the last semi-normal holiday we had in 2020. And if you still have the same Valentine you had last year, that’s kind...
Here we are. We have made it to February, the time of year jam-packed with candy conversation hearts and romantic love. Who could have imagined last year, as we perused the pink teddy bear aisle at Target, that the...
It’s time to celebrate! Nope, not the Chiefs, not a significant other, not even the birth of some old presidents. It’s time to go all-in for Galentine’s Day! Time to celebrate some of the most important people in my...
With COVID-19 still making date night out a challenge, this Valentine's Day we're celebrating with a little at-home date night after the kids are in bed. There are lots of great local choices for both grazing boards and locally...

  I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with New Year’s Eve. As a kid, I loved it! We could stay up until midnight at age 8? Fantastic! When I was in college and after, NYE became that night that I...
Nothing says the holidays like baking. OK, decorating our home might shout it a little louder, but BAKING is a very symbolic way to welcome the season. Nostalgia wafts out of the oven just as significantly as the aroma...
I feel a little cheated by the Elf on the Shelf.   This tiny North Pole transplant came around when my kids were too old to engage with him. While the Elf is the bane of many parent’s holiday, I find...
I’ve been worried about what Christmas would look like this year. My extended family is on the East Coast, and I am in no way comfortable with flying back right now. But despite 2020’s efforts with a devastating pandemic,...
Whether you need a great recipe for a fun holiday party.. oh wait, no parties this year... well, that doesn’t mean you can’t make fun recipes at home to try with your honey, or by yourself to enjoy in...

Gift-giving holidays are right around the corner and with them comes the age-old question "Is it OK to regift?" Even etiquette experts say "yes" when you do so carefully. You may be tempted to regift for a variety of reasons. ...
I’ll just go ahead and put it out there, I’m a bit of a beer snob. I’ve become the “beer person” in my group of friends, and I wear that badge with honor. One of my favorite things to...
While a pandemic has had us staying home more and more, we have had to find different ways to keep ourselves entertained. We have organized and donated lots of unused items. We have picked up new hobbies — I...
Holidays of the past included a lot of hustle and bustle and a way too busy calendar trying to squeeze as much magic in as possible. With being on the KCMC team, I’m fortunate to have been able to...
