made you feel

dear tsa agent

Dear TSA Agent, I am sure that you screen hundreds of people every day, and you probably don’t remember me or my family, but I remember you.  I remember people who make me cry. It was my family’s first vacation together, and my children’s first time on a plane.  At the time, they were 7 […]

the gifts of infertility

I’ve always been a fan of vintage and retro furniture as well as working with my hands, it’s a fun hobby my husband and I have in common. We’ve been holding on to an old set of 1980-something bar stools and figured with Spring arriving now is the perfect time to refinish the stools. We’ve never […]

a stress-free easter

In my mind, Spring officially kicks off when Easter comes around. I love this holiday. The pretty pastel dresses, the chocolate bunnies, the Easter Egg hunts. Easter always puts a smile on my face.
