I AM a girl. And I’m starting to get excited about planning this wedding. I’m listening to songs like Marry Me by Train. And Marry You by Bruno Mars. With […]
Sometimes life has this way of putting us in our place. We can build, and work, and plan, and think that we have everything under control and then something happens […]
There are only a few pages left to my current chapter in life. Three months and my daughter graduates. Six months and she’ll be moving into dorms. And me? Let me tell you what I HOPE happens and why I am hoping so much!

STOMP – gone.
He needs a house but he’s got a home in me. When I’m with him, no matter where we are I’m good. I know I felt that way in England. And I think he feels the same way here.
