I haven’t been posting much and this might be the longest break I’ve taken from my blog in a long, long time. Ever since I found out about my thyroid nodules, I haven’t been wanting to pick up my camera or write or do anything but be with my family. I don’t think I even […]

This is a late Mother’s Day post… because on Mother’s Day, I could not figure out what to say. Last year, I did an in-depth post that I felt couldn’t be topped in terms of sentiment (Happy Mother’s Day 2014)… plus this year, I was feeling a bit angsty. Let me explain. In the last […]

  • Lynn - so wonderful– what a great night– way to go Anna!!ReplyCancel

  • Celeste Meader - This was heartwarming! Anna looked great in her beautiful new dress. I loved how the high school girls were observant and sensitive enough to realize Anna was having a moment of feeling left out, and that they took the time to rectify that. It’s one thing being there as a volunteer to assist, but to go that extra step to notice someone was standing on the sidelines not having such a great time at that moment and step in to do something about it was fantastic and took a little more effort and understanding. Kudos to those girls for helping make a special event, but kudos even more to Anna for stepping outside her comfort zone and having a great time dancing with the boys!!! Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel

Happy Mother’s Day!!! To my Mom… Who is always there for me, for my children, and for all strays… people and animal alike. You have taught me to put myself in others’ shoes, to love unconditionally, to give, to be patient and kind, and most of all, to be the best mother I can be […]
