Happy RSV!

“We’re baby-free!” I cried out as my hubby and I headed to the beach to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first child-less weekend. The second day into it, I get the dreaded call.

Love My Neighbor

Love My Neighbor

“Waaaahhhhhh!” I hear my daughter screaming at the top her lungs. I swoop in for the rescue. She’s just learned to walk, and her unsteady legs caused her trip and scrape her face on the brick wall of our porch. These mild sunny December days have lured the girls and me to spend many an … Continue reading

For the month of December I’ve taken on AtlantaMomOfThree’s  Health and Fitness Challenge. She challenged us to set an exercise goal for the month and to report how we did on Mondays.
