I posted a while back about three lessons I learned from my son when he was a baby. It was right around Holy Week and as we approach that time of year again, I have a few more lessons to share… Continue reading
Bring me ALL the coffee! (aka We’re Still Adjusting…)
March has been a bit of a bumpy road. I think I had this idea that by now I’d have a solid grasp of all our life changes and be back to “normal” and ready to do all the things. I couldn’t have been more wrong… Continue reading
