For the second year in a row, I was able to take my daughter away for a nice beach vacation.  … Continue reading The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On

But Nobody Likes To Wait

I'm back from a harrowing respiratory infection that lasted the better part of two months. Ready to jump right into something happy.  So let's celebrate my daughter.  She just went to her third - and last - prom. Senior Prom, 2015: Boo getting pampered. She hates this photo, but it's my favorite.  She looks so happy. Just … Continue reading But Nobody Likes To Wait
