I remember running in the Charlotte Breast Cancer Awareness/Fundraiser 5k when I was 24 years old. A friend of mine was an avid runner and I somehow got talked into tagging along.

Yes, I sure did get this title from the soundtrack lead of the new Frozen movie. Yes, I sure did cry my eyes out while watching said new Frozen movie (Frozen 2).

Adjusting to being a mom of a toddler, I had no idea that motherhood would have growth spurts, emotionally, just as a child has them, physically. However, I didn’t elaborate on the 4-5 month battle this past fall with…… Continue reading Light
Reintroducing, myself. It’s been a few years of craziness around our home. Two little feet running and jumping are the soundtrack to our daily lives and we are grateful every single day. Those same two little feet have kept me on my toes – absorbed all of my energy, attention, and my heart. I left…… Continue reading Reintroducing…
Monday was the one year anniversary of Robert William’s due date. No, he probably wouldn’t have been born -on- his due date, but it’s the only date we can use. He would have been a year old. That’s a hard dose of reality to swallow, as I lie here with my 8 week old blissfully…… Continue reading Missing you
