Kobe and I took Mo coffee at work and got an impromptu tour of the area he was training in. Kobe loved getting to see his dad in action. On the way back to the hotel we picked up donuts from Peace, Love and Lots of Donuts. The owner Isabelle was a delight to talk to, we spent 20 minutes […]
The kids opted to spend the hottest part of day at the Coastland Center Mall. Mo and I had lunch at a Mexican restaurant called K-Rico. The food was fresh, full […]
We stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott because they are pet friendly. We spent most of our trip being lazy in the hotel. It was my favorite. Days of rest and togetherness, it’s all I needed.
My husband has a work trip in Naples this week. The kids and I decided to make a vaca out of it. This is only the second road trip Maximus […]

Tori, Khyre and the kidos suprised us by coming by Saturday to give Mother’s Day gifts and hugs quarantine style. Such sweet but sad moments. I may or may not […]

He started writing rap lyrics at 19 as a way to fight through the emotions he had dealing with depression and a physical disability. His lyrics not only woke up something creatively beautiful in his soul they woke up us, as […]
We were ENAMORED by Milan. The richness of the architecture and the beauty in every little detail from the simple designs of homes to intricacies of monuments. I loved that there was color everywhere. Blooming flowers overflowed off windowsills and whether I was looking at the floor, wall or ceilings there was touches of an artist hue in every […]
We finally made it to Milan following thirteen hours on planes, a train and a taxi. We initially landed in Zurich and explored for a few hours waiting on the train that would take us into Italy. Right away we ran into our first “we’re not in Kansas anymore” moment. Mo had to go to the bathroom. Once we found […]
Who else appreciates snapchat filters. It’s our family’s new fun communication method. This one tickled me. #iwilltakeher
Happy Birthday to my son-in love. He has had a great year, career wise, and in family, God is blessing! He has big dreams for the future and I look forward to watching him accomplish them. So proud of who he is as a young man, spouse and father.
