by

This past week I’ve been able to hoist the boys off to school each morning. Thus far (two days), I haven’t been screaming my head off about getting ready. On the way out we are able to swing by ChickFila for a couple chicken minis. It’s literally the best part of my…(Read More)

Today, we celebrated my big, little buddy’s 9th birthday. The most important things for my agenda today were taking him to his most requested spot TGI Fridays, for the endless apps, and to get his drums working. As I wired up the drums for him, placed the headset on him, kicked the floor drum…(Read More)

2018 :: Day Two

  Swamp Water… Coca Cola, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, Sprite, & Lemonade. That’s what’s taking place here. (Some people call it a ‘suicide’, for obvious reasons, I won’t). It’s absolutely disgusting. Gavin absolutely loves it. It’s nasty. For the past 5 or so years my lunches with my boys or…(Read More)

Facing upright. One foot in front of the other. Breathe in… breathe out. 2018 is underway and I’m going to soak in every moment. 2017 carried some serious gut punches but I am here… still standing. Everyday I want to journal a moment from that day because all the while, my memory just focusing…(Read More)
