I met up with a friend, Sarah, a few months back. She's one of those lifetime friends... You don't talk but maybe once or twice a year, but when you do, you haven't missed a beat. Let me just say, I am so thankful for those kinds of friends. I met her my 9th grade … Continue reading Overcoming Mom Guilt
This week we are at the beach. I love the beach. Growing up a few blocks from it was so much fun. Although I'm totally a Georgia girl now, I jump at the chance to go to the beach any time I can. Since we arrived, the double red flags have been out signaling that … Continue reading What the Ocean Taught me this Week

It was a Wednesday night and it was full of people and looked more like a food court, (dreams do weird things. lol).
