Still thinking about fathers this week…and for my walk down memory lane today, I have been remembering my own dad! So many memories – of easy, carefree days…of special life events….of perfect vacations….of great advice….the model of a true gentleman and such strong character! Not doubt, my sweetest memory is the evening I spent with… Read More The Blizzard
I sincerely hope that everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Mine was very special. I did get to hear from Jordan, who is feeling much better and should be realized by the doctor this morning and able to “get back to work” (did I mention he had been very sick?!)….but Em, bless her heart, was… Read More My Cookbook from Mom

It stinks,… Read More Lovin’ That Stink!

That’s right, I’m soon to be a mother-in-law! Like I said, it was quite the week last week. It was about two months ago… Read More A Ring!!…..Part Two
Thankful Thursday …. and I have tried all week to prepare this post…which has proved to be much more difficult that I thought. They were either too corny, too sticky sweet or just too emotional for me. Then again, just about everything as been emotional for me this week. This Thursday, however, finds me bursting… Read More
Before I begin, I feel like my post needs a bit of a disclaimer…it seems to me that lately all of my posts – a reflection of my thoughts, I suppose – center around the idea of my children “taking flight”…establishing lives of their own, growing up and needing me less (at least in the… Read More You’re Gonna Miss This!
Happy Birthday, Erica!! Today is my step-daughter’s 30th birthday and I want to wish her the sweetest day ever! Her father and I met when she was just a little thing – five years old – and I am very (very) blessed to have watched her grow and become the beautiful woman, wife…and Mommy to… Read More Erica
