Unconditional

Some people get cranky when they’re tired. Some when they’re stressed. Some when they’re hungry or sick or when they’ve been cooped up inside from a snowstorm. Me? I get cranky for all of the above reasons, but this particular night was the second day in a row that I was cranky from studying for... Continue Reading →

Tigger and Eeyore

There we are! Aren't we cute. I'm the grey one by the way. The one looking morbidly at the dirt I'm sitting in. The bright orange fellow mid bounce would be my husband. We have a perfect marriage.

What She Needs, Is What I’ll Miss

From the moment I came to my in-law’s house that weekend, I’d been avoiding her room. Aunt Lori warned me that she'd been packing all week. It made sense, we were getting down to the wire.
