    The Magic of 2019

    I’m feeling a little broadsided that it is the first week of 2020, you guys! I mean, I watched the days tick by on the calendar but it still seems a little mindblowing. The last decade of my life flew by! It’s hard to believe that I have lived in my little valley longer than […]

    Tears, Planning, and Big Dreams

    Well y’all, my little is officially in school. Don’t even get me started, I’ve cried enough as it is. Needless to say, she did much better yesterday than I did! She was awake, dressed, and wearing her fox backpack at 6am. I watched her climb aboard the school bus with a skip in her step […]

    The Letter

    My Daddy thinks I’m pretty great. He always has. And if that wasn’t always the case, he NEVER let on. I was his “Sunshine Girl” and my little girl me made him happy. But, if you listen to most of my extended family or old neighbors tell it, you’d get a different story. I must of […]
