I read this book the other day and I have not been able to stop thinking about it. I read it to a group of 5 year olds and was choking back tears the entire time. The books evoked so many emotions, but I can only describe the emotion as painful. Nubs made my chest […]

Slightly Marred by the Beast in the Yard

I am soooooo over Oinky right now. We are in a fight. A big one. I don’t think he’s mad at me, but I am definitely mad at him. Bf and I had a glorious, beautiful weekend in Savannah (more on that to come), but the weekend was slightly marred by the beast in the […]
