/ May 2, 2018

Whenever my kids kick in to “Miserable Teen Mode” I can be heard muttering, “Let’s have kids! It’ll be fun!” I could be in a crowd of people saying this or sitting alone in my car.

Here She Is! Queen of the Silver Lining

/ February 4, 2018

I’m a silver lining kind of girl. When something goes bad, I look for the silver lining. When life takes an unexpected turn, I look for the silver lining.
