Freshly Squeezed Ideas for Home and Family

I’m Carrie, a summer loving girl living in the Philadelphia ‘burbs.  I’m a mom to two kiddos, who at ages 3 and 4 keep things interesting around here. A former school librarian, I’ve traded in my pencils for play-doh and my heels for running shoes.  A dreamer, a thinker, and sometimes do-er (when I have a free moment, that is) I’m happily serving up freshly squeezed ideas for home and family here in my bloggy sandbox.

About Making Lemonade

Why Making Lemonade?

After my daughter’s traumatic birth turned our world upside down, we knew we had a choice– make lemonade, or live with sour lemons. Needless to say, we made lemonade and haven’t looked back since (though some days we may add a dash of tequila).  It wasn’t easy, going from two incomes to one and facing scary odds but that little fighter taught us more about life than I learned in my previous 30 {something} years.

If you’d like to learn more about my daughter’s vasa previa (ruptured umbilical cord) and our journey since, here’s a few posts on the subject.  My friends would like to remind you to keep your tissues handy {sidenote: I have the world’s most wonderful friends!}

While I often toy with the idea of declaring email bankruptcy, I really do love when people get in touch.  If I don’t answer right away please know it’s me, not you– and keep trying, most likely your lovely email has gotten buried.  Other ways to get in touch are on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.  While you’re at it, let’s be friends on Pinterest and Instagram too!
