Slayed by the Holidays

Wednesday would have been my mother’s 63rd birthday, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t because today, September 2, is actually the 6 month anniversary of her death.  How are we doing since she died?  Okay.  Truly, overall, okay.  Things like this never feel good, and they’re not supposed to.  But we are working at piecing things

Photo-Canvas.Com: The Monday Review

My inbox is always filled with offers and deals for photo canvases, and while I love, love pictures and think the canvases seem so cool, I have held out.  It truly isn’t the cost–somehow, much to the chagrin of my husband, my brain and budget manage to conform themselves around whatever my photo “needs” currently

Why I "Have It Like That"

It’s pretty easy to constantly rag on the overwhelmingly difficult task of rearing young children, but there are definitely some highlights of my gig that shouldn’t be overlooked… I’ve got a ready-made posse.  And I don’t even have to pay them.  My two children and my dog apparently have no conception of a life outside of a
