This was the scene here Friday. You can see the white stuff, but you can’t hear or feel the howling wind. It was a pretty nasty day outside, so much so that marching band was canceled for the playoff football game that night. This was the 4th time marching band had been canceled this fall due to inclement weather. It’s been a disappointing season for my son’s senior year....more
Have you ever had a dream wake you up in the middle of the night? Maybe you woke up in tears or scared of something? Or maybe you woke up and wished you could go back to sleep because your dream was just getting to the good part.

You dare to dream, and you dare to risk....more

Autumn - cosy sweaters, red and orange leaves crunching underfoot, cupped hands around steaming mugs of hot chocolate or apple cider - is by far my most beloved time of the year. Yes, yes, I know it's still August!
