No Baby Games. No Gifts. No B.S.

How to host a baby shower everyone wants to attend! And, yes, you read correct – No Baby Games. No Gifts. No B.S. Well, I guess there is some “B.S.” since it is a “Baby Shower.” If this is your first time here – Welcome! Always love seeing new faces! Actually, this is a first […]

Taking Time Off


Oh love, it has been a hot second! I have been feeling quite guilty that it has taken me this long to get my act together and get in check with all things “Janine Serio.” While I have not taken “actual” time off, I have taken some time off from blogging to get some inspiration […]

Setting Boundaries


Good Morning Gorgeous! Happy 1st Friday in March and, WOW, has it already March? Lately, life has felt like an unbelievable roller coaster; more on this to come BUT, for now, I am simply taking things one day at a time at trying to do my best every step of the way (although I was […]

Why It’s Okay for Change to Be Scary


I have to say, I really don’t do my best writing at night. Here I am, at approximately 7:53 pm in Baltimore, and I am multi-tasking between computer work, dinner, vino, and adjusting to my new surroundings. Going back to food; I feel like all I have done is eat out and I ready for […]

Stop Taking Everything So Seriously


Happy, Happy Monday, and April 19th! Is it me, or does it seem that time is just flying by!?!? It’s crazy that it is almost the end of the month and I cannot WAIT for some warmer weather, a little less rain, and looking forward to, finally, be settled into my new place. For someone […]

My Next Chapter


Good Monday Afternoon, and another dreary one from Baltimore. Ugh. Grr. I am beginning to think we are in nothing but a rainy, gloomy holding pattern. I was talking with a friend today over coffee and we were both saying that this is just plain blah. Beyond the weather, I did get my vaccine yesterday […]

Why I Love Spring Cleaning


Happy Thursday, and a ridiculously wet one from Baltimore too. There are some dreary days that make you feel productive; others, like today, just have you wondering how it is already the afternoon. Luckily I am getting my act together. I am checking things off my to-do list & a banana bread is baking. Yes, […]
