Have you ever been accused of loosing your marbles? I want you to think about that in a different light. Did you know that from the time your child is born, you have approximately 936 weeks until that child graduates high school and heads off to the work force or college? 936 weeks until […] Read more »

It seemed like only yesterday I was putting my little blonde haired bow-headed girl on the bus to kindergarten and then following it to see her get off the bus for the first time. Fast-forward about 650 weeks and we are in the final days of our high school career. Graduation is three weeks away. […] Read more »

With my daughter’s graduation less than 100 days away (she is counting down the days, not me!), I feel like I am holding on for dear life. Holding on, and trying to let go at the same time…it’s tricky business I tell you! She breezes in and out on a regular basis, going from school […] Read more »

I recently read several quotes from Les Miserables, which is currently out in theatres and winner of several awards. My daughter said after seeing it that “they sing everything!” I don’t think she was totally impressed.

In one of my end of the year retrospective moments, I downloaded a series of reflective questions from a blogger I follow. You know the kind. What was the best thing that happened, what was the worst? What was your greatest joy, what was your greatest obstacle? I took some quiet moments and answered the […] Read more »

I had the chance to get away with my teenage daughter a couple of weeks ago. We took a road trip to Nashville just the two of us. I highly recommend getting away with your daughter by yourself!

It’s been a summer of traveling with each of my children separately to various places. My son and I went to Virginia to see my sister and her family. I took my daughter and a friend to Atlanta to attend “the” concert of the summer, complete with stalking the band members. Well stalking may be […] Read more »
