Today, I’m going to talk about something that I have not publicly spoken about before… at least not on this platform anyway. Not because I try to hide anything about who I am; I just don’t feel that it has ever been relevant until now. However, saying that, I have noticed that I try to […]

Our School Year Goals

Before I had children, it was so cliché when parents came out with, “it feels like only yesterday…” blah blah blah. Yeah, right! But it’s so true. Joshua is turning five years old next weekend and I can’t believe my baby has grown up this quickly. In some ways, it 100% feels like five years, […]
