I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

Last week, The Young and the Restless celebrated its 24th year at the top of the daytime drama ratings, The Associated Press reports.

The feat is something to celebrate despite the current decline of daytime dramas. When Young and the Restless premiered in 1973, there were 13 soaps on air, but only four remain today. Y&R averaged 4.4 million viewers last week.

Though The Young and the Restless is the only soap to see a decline in viewership this year, its ratings still trump those of runner-up The Bold and The Beautiful and General Hospital and Days of Our Lives, which rank third and fourth, respectively.

Has your favorite show been canceled?

"It's definitely not something that we take for granted," Angelica McDaniel, senior vice president of daytime for CBS, told the AP.

The soap, which follows the exploits of the people of Genoa City, features such mainstays as Jeanne Cooper, Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott and Peter Bergman. McDaniel credits the series' relevant storytelling and multigenerational characters as key to Young and the Restless' success.

What's your favorite soap opera?
