52 Week Saving Plan

Save Some Money

I know the holidays have just come to an end and you probably just put away your decorations. However, it is never too early to think about next Christmas and start saving early. I saw an image posted on Facebook the other day and it made perfect sense to me to use something like it to save for next holiday season. The premise is simple, you save a little bit each week and at the end of the year you will have over $1,000 ($1,378.00 to be exact) to spend frivolously on your loved ones! No pain involved…  Well maybe a […] Read more »

Happy Birthday my dear Alicia

First Day of 1st Grade

Today is a very special day, not only because it is your birthday but because it is the day I first saw a true angel. It seems like it was only yesterday that you came into my life. A precious little bundle of joy. I was even scared to hold you at first. But now look at you! You have grown into a beautiful young woman who makes me proud daily to call you my Daughter. I know life is not easy at times and we have gone through our struggles, but we have made it through them all and […] Read more »

Happy 100th Birthday Gramps (R.I.P.)

Happy Birthday Gramps (In Heaven) In Loving Memory George  Valentine Warnett February 14, 1910 – November 18, 2002 Today would have been my grandfathers 100th birthday if he was still with us here on earth. I miss him and think of him almost everyday. I have been reminded of him a lot lately as I have been doing work for Friends of Van Cortlandt Park. There were many days that I spent in Van Cortlandt Park picking berries, getting spring water or collecting birch branches with my grandfather. I hope you and Nana are once again happy together in a […] Read more »
