Somewhere in between 14 years and today I forgot how to say yes.  I used to be a “Yes Mom” and some where between raising kids, a mission and a career I lost it.  It feels like I say no to everything, unless of course I am trying to make up for the No’s thatContinue reading

How could summer almost be half way over.  I have not recovered from Memorial Day, Graduation and all the other other events that have gotten in the way of “slow down” this past month.  Don’t you just wish you could hit the snooze for a week and forget about all the things you need toContinue reading

I noticed something last weekend, in-between some projects and travel schedule.  I can’t explain it except it caught me off guard.  I was watching my daughter try and ride her tricycle, something that generally comes so easy to a six year old.  Well that is not the case for my daughter.  She is still tryingContinue reading

Every year I think about what I will write on World Down Syndrome Day about where I am, where my daughter is and where our family is going as we navigate the diagnosis of Down syndrome that we received a little over 6 years ago.   Over the years my posts have changed.  They started outContinue reading

The weather has been so interesting this year.  Freezing one day, snowing the next, and then sunshine with 50 degrees.  You never quite know what it is going to feel like when you walk out the door.  It has been kind of fun guessing.  I am all for little milder winter and for early signs ofContinue reading

I was reminiscing as I was planning this post about the past couple of weekends.  Weekends that gave me the opportunity to step away from my every day life and out into the world alone.  It was like dipping my toes into a pool of water that was right temperature.  The kind of water that makes youContinue reading

This month was something.  Nothing to complain about.  A little snow and a little sun, what more do you want?  All I can say is it was slow.  We rang in the New Year ready to sprint out of the gates and in some respects we did, but in others it was still January.  SoContinue reading

Happy New YEAR! HELLLOOOO 2016! That feels so good to say!  The anticipation of a new beginning, the launch of our new partners over at Changing the Face of Beauty  was getting a little out of control.  I am so glad the new year is here, now beginning here I come and did you SEE theContinue reading

Dear Grace- Here we are today staring 6 years right in the eye balls.  Seems like yesterday we were holding you for the first time.  Last night as Sue asked us question after question, like she does every year on the eve of your big day, your Dad and I strolled through those memories.  WhatContinue reading

With the first week of vacation over and the second almost halfway through we are savoring the last, and some might say the best, of it.  Although our family time during Christmas Eve is pretty special, the day of Christmas is a little nerve wrecking for me.  Ensuring Santa took care of all my 6Continue reading
