  • Hello. And Goodbye.

    A year ago, I accidentally stopped writing.  Nothing started it. The pandemic hadn’t officially shut down our lives yet. But I just stopped. Somehow I felt like I ran out of words to say. Which is weird, as this blog had been a part of my life for almost fourteen years. How does something  some vital […]

  • The Big Kid.

    This summer, Riley turned into a big kid. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. Maybe it started with summer camp. He went for three weeks. I dropped him off and picked him up every day. And every day I felt like he was getting a little bit more confidence and just a […]

  • That Late Night Life.

And you quickly assured me that yes, yes we would. And it’s […]

Starting off this week’s cuteness we have the oh so beachy and trendy McConaughey family on a walk around the happiest place on earth. I mean when did Vida get so dang big and adorable? And Levi with those suspenders? I melt. Also bringing […]

  • That one time I went to the American Idol finale.

    Ready for some more Idolness? Of course you are. So I got a last minute invite on Wednesday that there was an extra ticket for me courtesy of AT&T to attend the finale taping of American Idol if I could make it. Pshaw, of course I could make it! I zipped home to change and […]

  • Oh My Nola.
