Be Brave Be Bold And Shine


They say that writing everyday will improve your writing skills. Correction, writing everyday will fry your brain. The word for it is writer’s block. Supposedly, every writer gets it.

But I want to … Continue reading Be Brave Be Bold And Shine

Beauty For Ashes


My son’s first football scrimmage was today. It was his first game on Mighty Mites. To my surprise, they played their little hearts out, winning 2 scrimmages and tying one.

Should Your Child Be Vaccinated?


To moms who are hesitant to vaccinate their children against the measles, mumps and rubella, trust me when I tell you, I’m also guilty of having the same doubts.
