Ahhh we are free. Free to explore. Free to run. Free from these horrible white walls that have confined us. This past week has been so nice that we have been able to go outside. It is such a wonderful feeling to see the girls go play in the snow without worrying about frostbite setting… Read More

I often get excited for a new year because of the possibilities. 365 days to explore. 365 days to plan. 365 days to enjoy. I am not one to do New Years resolutions but new year goals. What I hope to accomplish for myself, for my family, for my home. On some goals I falter… Read More

Wow! I am absolutely flabbergasted by my lack of writing. Time seems to escape me. I never know which direction to go. I often find so little time for myself that I end up lost in what I should do with that time. I have to admit that I usually end up in my room… Read More
