    A Seriously Long Post

    I have been sitting outside, on my deck, while I watch my dogs playing in the yard. As I sit, I tend to reflect on my life a lot and where I have been and where I am now.  As I reflect on yesterday I can’t help but be thankful.  Did I get a lot of presents under a...

    I've had my days where I just wanted to curl in
