  • stright.jpg Sarah Stright-Hartley: These pastels will put a spring in your step

    Is it just me or are pastels ubiquitous with spring? Once the season hits, they're everywhere. It's taken me awhile to jump on the pastel bandwagon and even still I can't wear them head to toe like some women do.

  • Kali.jpg Kali Davies-Anderson: Experiment proves cake really is a slice of heaven

    There are few things on this earth and beyond that I love more than cake.  I love my family, I love my friends, I love Jesus, and I love cake — and not necessarily in that order (sorry, family).

  • Brothers.jpg Lori Brothers: Play with names — not with your food

    Do you remember being told, “don’t play with your food” when you were a child?  Or maybe you’ve said this to your own children or grandchildren. I’ve heard stories about kids slipping food under the table to the dog or stuffing Brussels sprouts into their pockets to get out of the pain of eating them.

    I love finding pieces that can be worn for just about every portion of my life.  From daytime, to work, and then on a date with my husband, I like pieces that can go the distance.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
