I want to share this article on the Houston flooding from Harvey because I have never experienced anything like this in MY life, and I’m a lucky one.

I’ve always been an optimistic, glass half full, gonna be ok kind of girl.

In fact, I think I probably went several days or possibly weeks in a row without thinking about these subjects. Why wasn’t I more aware?? I… Read More Birthday wishes
I’m feeling a little melancholy today. The 4th of July…..so many great memories!! It’s always been one of my favorite holidays because it’s such a laid back family oriented holiday. No pressure to buy gifts or make a huge deal out of things. Throw something on the grill, crack open a watermelon, grab a… Read More Happy Independence Day!
