    Project: Order…The Master Plan

    A decade ago, when Manly and I tied the knot, I was put on “the pill”. It seemed like a good idea because everybody else I knew was on it, so it must be great, right? Wrong! {Well, for me anyway. It may be fantastic for you. If so, rock on!} Out of nowhere, my naturally optimistic, […]

    Tonight I watched my husband’s dad sing “Feliz Navidad” into a candy cane. With a Santa hat and a big mustached smile, he danced around our living room with my little girls. As I giggled in the kitchen, I listened to my daughters squeal in delight as their beloved Grandpa dipped and twirled them across the floor. Some men […]
