Sixteen years ago today, my beautiful blue-eyed baby girl made her way into the world. I was a young mom, not even in my 20s yet. I was still a kid in many ways, so when I saw my daughter and I grew up together, it’s the truth. As I look at my daughters’ pictures today, I can’t help but think about how lucky I was and am to have been...

If you’re a regular reader of this site, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been mostly MIA for quite some time now.

Yesterday started out really well. I felt great. I was motivated and able to accomplish a lot. I was pumped at how much I crossed off my to do list. Once I was done working,I went to pick up my son at school in the afternoon like I always do.  I found a spot to park in right out front and waited for dismissal time. To pass the time I texted one of my best...

It’s been a long time since I gave you guys an update on my son who is now nine-years-old and is filled with a zest for life that is contagious. That little boy has taught me many things about life. The last time I posted an update, we knew he had ADHD. His pediatrician diagnosed him with the disorder when he was only a few years old.. She saw him grow...
