Work/life balance

Last night I looked at Brandon - at his curious, roaming body. I watched him wriggle and crawl and laugh. He has grown up so fast. Last year he was still in my belly and now he can kind of talk and almost walk. Everything all the other parents have said for years is right... Continue Reading →

2013 goals

I have a lot of downfalls. More than, most, I suppose. So in hopes of curbing some of them, I have something to work on this year. It's discipline. I realize that so many things I want to do that I don't or that I do that I shouldn't are because of a lack of... Continue Reading →

My top 10 celebrities of 2012
