Last year, on a Sunday night I held my children close to me. I held them closer than I ever had. Put my smile on, and said, “I’ll see you in a few days…” My youngest, barely four years old wanted to know what toys he’d have when he got back to my house…my 9 […]

Starting with Discipline

11 June 2018

All day I’ve been waiting for inspiration to strike: how do I tell the story of the last few years? Do I start with the story of my divorce, and how I found the courage to leave? Do I tell the story of all of the upheaval of every little tiny piece of the life […]

The Nursery is Ready!

16 August 2013

Our house is kinda silly.  It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but for all its square footage, it’s really only a two bedroom house.  We have the basement which houses my craft room, vodka room (yep……it’s where I do all the infusions), a general playroom type area and a guest room (legally, however, it can’t […]

Oh man. The countdown is on, and like every other pregnant lady at this stage in the game – I’m OVER it! Last night I was lucky enough to have some alone time…probably the last I’ll have in a while.  My husband was off on a river rafting trip somewhere along some Oregon river, and […]
