I’m Happy My Mom Plan Failed…Here’s Why

It's no shock if you've been following along for a while or if you know me...I like organization. I like things in their place, events planned down to the minute and tidy surroundings.

Dear Mom, Now I Know

For many years I never truly understood what being a mom really meant. I looked at my baby pictures and you were always smiling so big.
