It’s funny because I’ve noticed recently that the further we get from home, the closer my family tends to get. At home we […]

Inspiration Where You Least Expect It

Tonight my nine-year-old daughter told me to get on my running shoes and come outside with her. I begged her to go upstairs and play. I didn’t want to go outside. It’s like Mars in Houston right now and I’ve been feeling bad about myself for skipping work-outs. I have had a hard time keeping up with […]

Did you know that it’s National Fire Prevention Week? When I was little, my mother’s friend’s apartment caught on fire. I remember how devestating it was to her.

After some pretty crazy rain in Houston, we woke up to a beautiful Sunday morning last weekend. The minivan was pretty grimy from going back and forth to soccer practice and games, play rehearsals and running errands, so we decided to take advantage of the sunny day and clean it up. Over the summer while at Blogger […]
