    Ginormous

    By janeylack in Janey Lacks Blog

    Ooh La La

    By janeylack in Janey Lacks Blog

    Ooh La La, what does that mean?! Well, for this moment it's simply a stand-in for "fashion!" And why fashion? -- because I have been thinking about shopping for a sofa and when you do that, two key questions pop ...

    I Love Being a Mom

    By janeylack in Janey Lacks Blog

    I love being a mom (now, a mom and a grandmother!!). For sure, it’s a lot of hard work. Mothers are never really off- duty. Life happens 24/7/365 and needs don’t confine themselves to a neat package during daytime hours. ...

    By janeylack in Janey Lacks Blog

    This picture from a couple weeks ago popped onto my screen this morning. It made me think of a childhood lesson. My mother found beauty in everything. She found beauty in sunny days, cooing babies, a delicious meal. She found ...
