When it snowed

I can still remember the day. It was Thanksgiving, 2010, and my daughter was seven-months-old. We had given her a bagel to gnaw on for the very first time and she played happily on the floor of our small, quaint living room in our little, first house. And then, snowflakes started to dance from the sky and ...

I was such a bad mom

(featured image above is from last Thursday, when I also felt like a bad mom.) Today, I cried. I cried a lot.

This came about after posting "The Hardest Post I've Ever Written", about ...

Feb Photo Hooray!

Yesterday's #febphotoaday was my favorite yet, and thank you to everyone who got in on the fun. It has been voyeurism at it's finest and I've so enjoyed seeing what is inside your bathroom cabinet. And I'm totally judging you. Truly, though, it has been a blast, and if you haven't checked out some of the Facebook posts, ...
