Did You Know That I Love You! Yes, You!

So it is #bloglikecrazy day 9!I admit it, I am feeling the ahhhhh! what do I write about bug. I let the internet suck me and spit me out today. I wanted to write about something witty, but all I can think about right now is how intolerant people are with each other. We can't say we are open-minded and then in the same sentence be intolerant of those who have differen[...]


Thankful for You

It's Thanksgiving Day and I am thankful for a lot of things... My life is not perfect, sometimes far from it. We have money issues and stress at work, we fight from time to time and say things we shouldn't but I wouldn't trade my family or my life for anything.

Little Skating Divas

In The Blink of an Eye

My daughter just left for her first day of school as a senior in high school. I can't help but feel a little sad to see her go.  I don't feel old enough to be a mother of a senior but even more hard to believe is the fact that she isn't my little baby any more! She will always be my baby of course, but those days of ice skating and ballet have been replaced with Roll[...]
