I watch a lot of British crime dramas on Netflix, PBS, and Amazon.  I found this little cheat sheet to explain what the various British police ranks mean.  You are welcome! 🙂


Summertime often means picnics.  I thought this picnic food generator was quite clever and contained some interesting ideas.  Enjoy!


From my face book page last week:

Did you see these beautiful photos of motherhood?  Absolutely mesmerizing!  They were included in the book Family by Margaret Mead and Ken Heyman.
