read

When I went to the farmer’s market this past weekend, there was one booth that had this adorable antique wagon.  As soon as I spotted it, I deemed it mine… if they would sell it. Crossing my fingers… SOLD! So today, being so gorgeous out, I was in the mood to do a quick DIY […]

Thirsting after the right water – DJM8

read

For the first time in a long time, my son wasn’t with me on this given weekend. When that happens, something in me changes. I no longer have to hover. Dictate. Worry. Decide. Constantly cook.

read

This morning turned out so different from the past 10 days. I woke up to my two cats snuggling near me, with birds chirping through the slightly ajar bedroom window. No sirens.
