Style at Home: Celebrate Easter in your home decor

If your family celebrates Easter, chances are you've got some great childhood memories surrounding the cherished holiday. One of mine? Hunting for Easter eggs. As soon as we got home from Easter Mass we headed over to my dad's good friend's house, where I'd join their passel of six girls to scout for eggs while Dad and Mr. Loftin would crack open a beer (unbeknown to Mrs. Loftin and my mom, who were busy cooking Easter dinner).

Your child has been diagnosed with autism. Now what?

Hearing for the first time that your child has autism can be an overwhelming experience, bringing panic, fear, relief, denial, sadness, anger. Whatever your questions, you want the best for your child. It is time to begin accessing the services and supports needed for your child to achieve his or her very best.


On a culinary cruise, you eat well and learn to cook well

If there is one thing almost as certain as death and taxes, it's that a passenger on a cruise ship will never go hungry. I remember my first cruise where breakfast was followed by a mid-morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner and finally, if we were still in need of sustenance, a midnight buffet.


Kicking it in England

East Tennessee vacation haven still thriving in wake of wildfires

It's a spectacular drive northward along Highway 441 from small town of Cherokee on the North Carolina side of Smoky Mountains National Park to Gatlinburg on the Tennessee side. In the lower elevations, the spring wildflowers of mid-March - mostly trillium - pop from the ground, offering bits of color that soon disappear the higher we climb toward 5,046-foot Newfound Gap at the center of the park. At the highest elevations, patches of snow and ice among the fir and spruce trees prove that winter still hangs on.

Wallpapers from Brett Design pack serious punch

Take one look at Brett Beldock's dramatic wallpaper, and it's no surprise to learn the New York-based interior and product designer has a background in fashion. In fact, an eye for color, texture, material and scale clearly informs all her work for Brett Design, from luxe seating, tables and casegoods to a line of custom rugs for Doris Leslie Blau.
