“ Revealing the truth is like lighting a match, it can bring light or it can set your world on fire.” Wiz Khalifa The loss of an ideal, for me, […]
I didn’t want hominy again. In fact I felt like if I had to eat one more bite I would vomit. At nine, I did not realize the reasons behind the third day of having to eat the yellow, round kernels of grit I was trying to focus on chewing and swallowing. I was just tired of it. I wanted […]
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 […]
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 […]
This guy right here is the biggest dreamer you will ever meet. He has big, swiss mountain size dreams. 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 […]
The Bellagio is an area that is very touristy and congested which made us appreciate the quiet spaces of our bed and breakfast. It was located in a secluded area of Lake Como with gorgeous views of the mountains around us. Mo and I had a blast exploring the open roads and hills around our B&B. Pauola, the sweet Colombian […]
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.
Natalie’s choir took part in a memorial ceremony on 9/11. We will not forget. Prayers for our countries continued healing. For the families who lost loved ones. For the safety and protection of our country. For the men and women serving to protect. For love and peace to reign. In Jesus name. God bless America.
I STRONGLY dislike the process of cooking. For the first 22 years of marriage my husband did most of the cooking because he loves it and he is an amazing chef. We had a great thing going until he switched careers, which decreased his after work flexibility. That left me to cook. (Que the violin) Normally I look at a […]
We made brunch for Tori’s birthday. The whole tribe (and a few adopted members) swarmed her home for a few hours. Ironically as I was thinking about what to say about my oldest I came across a draft in my blog that I had written for her birthday ten years ago. How crazy (and perfect) is time?! To my 16 […]
It is never going to make sense, seeing my little’s become adults. Jordan has officially joined the ranks! The transition from teen to adult appeared smooth to me although he may tell a different story. Jordan has always seemed like a young/old man to me. I remember holding him only a couple of hours after his birth and looking […]
Music is an integral part of our lives. Classical, jazz, country, hip hop, you name it. I do teach my tribe the importance of knowing what the music they are […]
We showed up to Kobe’s first flag football practice expecting to be spectators. Mo never stays in that role long when it comes to our kids participation in sports. He […]
The Kansas girl in me loves an authentic pumpkin patch where you can pick your pumpkin from the vine and go on a hay ride before you go home. Unfortunately […]
