Pray for the Best

It’s been almost 2 weeks since Irma came barreling her way through the state of Florida. I am driving down the turnpike taking my kids to a birthday party when I look next to me and see eight Budget trucks with the Red Cross sign on the back. My heart is suddenly filled with warmth […]

Hurricane Irma through the Eyes of a Mom

Category FIVE. Two of the most frightening words to any Floridian, or anyone living in a coastal area for that matter.

I Pushed My Daughter Off the Boat

It was a beautiful, not-yet-too-humid summer morning in south Florida. My father had offered to take us all out on his boat, so right after breakfast I did the thirty-minute circus called “getting four children ready to go somewhere.” The girls were all super excited about this adventure, especially our eldest.

Embrace the Strong Will

When I found out my daughter was going to be born in October, I knew right away what to expect from a Libra. Between my husband and I, we have six family members born in October, including my husband and my sister. I knew right away that my daughter was going to be a lot […]
