Last night I dropped a battery operated candle and it shattered all over the kitchen floor. I stared at the tiny pieces of glass that varied in size. The larger pieces would be a bit easier to pick up. And while I knew they’d hurt if we stepped on them, I knew it would be… Continue reading Happy 30th Birthday, Samantha
Show up. Keep it Real. Inspire. Breathe. Getting back in a groove after taking six days off really gave me a run for my money. 🥴 And right around the corner, we’re starting a whole new chapter with pre-k, fall sports and more. 📚⚽️⚾️ Today, I did a virtual workout with some pretty special people,… Continue reading Little Words

I’ve been staring at this screen for quite some time. Each year as this day approaches, I wonder what will come to mind, and what I could possibly write that could be much different than the previous year.
