Beyond the Dream.

Saturday night, I went to a choir concert called “Beyond the Dream : A gospel concert celebrating 34 years of Dr. Martin Luther King in Orlando”. Now, My kid was singing in it. And if you know me personally – you know I am not a big fan of choir music. Like, I think it’s…

It’s 111 days away…. are your ready?

Are you racking your brain? Trying to figure out what is 111 days away? It’s CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! Are you excited? Groaning? I am a little bit of both, to be honest. Christmas in one of my favorite times of year, but it’s also stressful. Especially, when it is the gift buying season and you are on…

Grief.

“If what I am experiencing is heartbreak, then grieving is inevitable.” – Brene’ Brown Yesterday was the 8th anniversary of Shaun’s death. Should we even call it an anniversary?
