A letter to Emma

Baby Girl,  It's a dark, and violent world we are living in.  I don't know at what point in life you will read these blogs, but I can only imagine things are going to get worse before they ever get better.  I hope this is not the case, but it seems to be the way... Continue Reading →

A Mothers Rant

You know what makes moms go crazy?  No time to themselves!  Being a full-time mom is such a blessing, and I am so grateful I no longer have to schlep from airport to airport and store to store, but dang it, I need some time alone!  I guess I didn't really consider the fact that...

I thought I loved your father, but the love I have for you almost hurts at times.  I... Continue Reading →
