It may seem that all we do is buy new dress clothes on this blog but I promise there is so much life going on. I am just literally terrible at keeping y’all up to date. And while I know you’re just so anxious to hear from me more often, I have to start shopping for prom.Continue reading
Can someone please tell me why, as we (gracefully) age, tears seem to be the natural response to … everything? Does life make us that tender? Am I just too emotional? Never mind. I don’t want anyone to answer my questions.Continue reading
Oh, friends. It’s been a while, huh? I’ve missed you so much and I sure do love you.
For as long as I’ve been away, I swear I’ve also been hearing my dad’s tractor on the daily. I’ve never seen a retired couple work as hard as my parents. But that’s another story for another day.Continue reading

Ok, let’s just get something out of the way right at the outset. At the onset? From the get-go? The start; let’s just go with that. I try real hard with the words.

Looking back over the past year … I’m totally kidding.Continue reading
Ok, first of all. We’ve been dating now for nearly six months and when I say ‘we,’ I mean CJ and his lovely girlfriend Abby. I think I’m officially too old to date. It’s probably more like meet-ups at the bingo hall. Or something.Continue reading
I’m just here to tell you that there is literally nothing that’s made me more emotional this fall than watching my son partner up with the varsity football team. Wait. I’m not the only mom that cries at football games … am I?Continue reading
