Sharing Is Caring

 I was giving myself a headache trying to come up with something to post today.  You want to share, but not T.M.I.  You want to connect and resonate, but you’re not sure how to type the words eloquently, or  without sounding too pompous and being down right annoying....more

Current Thougths

It's interesting to think about writing and blogging because I've been away for so long. It's like I'm out of practice and so I don't have topics and ideas that have been brewing.

Empty nesting milestone: out of the trenches

Having Ky leave on the bus to head back to college was, as anticipated, pretty hard.
