Anticipating Spring

Spring seems to be the most anticipated season for so many people! For those of us that live on the west coast its that glorious time when the rainy (and recently snowy) season starts to ease up a little. It’s when we get to see more sun, longer days, blue sky and flowers in bloom. […]

For my girls

My darling daughters, Did you know that I dreamed of you (and your brother/s) for years before I ever met your daddy? I had lots of lessons to learn before I was ready to be your mama and I’m still learning each and every day but here are a few of my prayers for you […]
