The Moments That Define Us

The Moments That Define Us Those ‘pinch-me’ moments.  You know the ones.  The ones where you’re sitting in a somewhat relaxed state watching your children play.  The ones when you’re on a hot beach and in the not so distant air is the smell of sea and the sound of waves.  And you mustn’t forget […]

Why Every Family Needs A Dog I won’t lie to you. I am definitely one of those people who was obsessed with my pets … until the minute I brought my daughter home from the hospital. Now they serve as mostly a drain on my patience and finances. Don’t worry though, I’m sure when I […]

Parenting, A Different Kind Of Busy

Parenting, A Different Kind Of Busy Remember when you didn’t have kids and you were so busy? It was hard to get to the gym more than three times a week, to make it to all those social events, to get to the grocery store, to put away all the laundry. How dare anyone tell […]
