It's been a while since my last post.

We occasionally say the wrong … Continue reading Please Don’t Ask if I’m Ready for Christmas

When One Door Closes… #upbeatauthors

Back in 2008, my youngest daughter and her husband packed up everything they owned and moved from Utah, where we had all been living in close proximity to one another, to Florida, something like 25 gazillion miles away.
