Seriously, folks, has it really been five years that I’ve been married to this wonderful man?!? It’s both flown by and seemed like longer than 5 years. In some ways, I feel like it was just yesterday we were walking down the isle (and I was about 25 lbs lighter). In other ways, it seemsContinue reading “Photo Friday: Five Fabulous Years Together”
Wow, guys….. What. A. Week. It’s been one for the record books. There were Valentine’s Day school parties, Garen on the road two days, getting ready for helping with decorations for the school dance, and more “real work” than I can shake a stick at. And then the weekend full of laundry, washing and puttingContinue reading “My Funny Valentine”

I just recently watched the popular Netflix movie, Duplin’. It was fantastic. I’m not going to say much more because I hate spoilers but thisContinue reading “Whoooooo are you?”

Confession: this is a little more serious of a post than what I usually write. I grew up in a small, rural town in Texas where we didn’t ever get MLK day off. We briefly learned about him and his “I have a dream” speech in school. But we never went too much in depthContinue reading “Celebrating MLK”
