Example  Entry from last years Winner!
My Valentine is my husband of almost 16 years. We met in college and have basically grown up together. He is an awesome husband and father. He works so hard to provide for our family. This would probably embarrass him but I have a story of what kind of guy he is. In 2004 we had just had our 2nd child and we were very overwhelmed with a 1 year old and a newborn baby, so at the time we decided he would have a vasectomy. Three years later I regretted our decision. Although painful, he went through a vasectomy reversal because he knew what having another child would mean to me. We were blessed with our 3rd child in 2009. He will go to the ends of the Earth for us. He will go out even when he's sick just to buy our daughter something she wants, or to get something to cheer me up. When we were dating he would write me poems, and although he doesn't have time to do that any more, he shows me daily how much he loves me. I had a bad childhood and the years I've had with my husband have completely made up for it. I can't believe I'm this lucky. He takes care of me when I'm sick and 2 years ago was my support system when doctors found a tumor in my breast (after surgery it turned out benign). He is my best friend, makes me laugh and smile, listens to me patiently when I need to vent, and is my shoulder to cry on when I need it. In a word, he is my everything.

    Over 300 Ways to Re-Imagine Lunch

    Sadly the holidays are over and its time to get back to reality. For most of us that means of us that means getting back to work and those with families school is back in session. One of the biggest challenges at for me about getting to my regular routine is trying to figure out what to eat. Of course we all know the usual sandwich and chips but after awhile that can get a little boring.

    So today we are on a mission to discover new ways to give our lunches a makeover

    First you and I need to make sure we have the proper supplies
    I like these bento style containers because it helps you separate the different groups
    •  ziploc bags 
    • refillable water bottles
    • washable plastic spoons (some plastic bento boxes come with utensils)
    •  thermoses
    • cloth napkins
    • Standard Baking Cups or Mini Dip/Sauce Containers

    Second we should figure out the best way to organize our new lunch extravaganza
    Here's what's in each of the bins, but I alternate from week to week
    (1) Nosh - Chips, cookies, bars
    (2) Snack - Pretzels, crackers, popcorn
    (3) Fruit - Apple slices, melon, orange, banana ect.....
    (4) Vegetables - carrots, celery, peppers from http://not2shabbey.blogspot.com/

     We should investigate other ways to make the classic lunch box sandwich

    Wrap Recipes


      Now we need to figure what we are going to feed the kids for lunch time

    I have classes on Saturdays from 8-5 and I never know what to bring for lunch ( like I said earlier I am not into sandwiches) so I eat out .But to be honest I really don't have the budget for it.What do you do to keep your family within budget when it comes to eating out. I know with allergies running rampend today that everyone does lunch differently.

    What do you and your family eat for lunch?

    In memory of my beautiful sister. You will be missed

     This is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to write. Last month my sister Heidi passed away in her sleep. It had been a really rough week for me and my family. I love and miss her everyday.

    At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them.
     At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.
     At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
     At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
    At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
     At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.
     As long as we live, they too will live; for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
    When we are weary and in need of strength, We remember them.
    When we are lost and sick at heart, We remember them.
    When we have joys we yearn to share, We remember them.
    When we have decisions that are difficult to make, We remember them.
    When we have achievements that are based on theirs, We remember them.
     As long as we live, they too shall live, for they are a part of us, as we remember them.
