Who is Driving Your Car?

My family recently completed some car shopping. Now, you probably need to know that I am not a fan of car shopping, and if ever there was a time not to car shop… well that would be now. Selections are almost non-existent as most car dealers have almost empty lots. But for some odd reasonContinue reading “Who is Driving Your Car?”

Creating Lasting Childhood Memories

I love the memories we make with our children. I was just thinking the other day about all of the sweet memories my parents and family helped me create as a child.  What do you recall from yours?  I know we all have some memories of our childhood we would prefer to forget.  Sometimes lifeContinue reading “Creating Lasting Childhood Memories”

Self Expression

Just a disclaimer for my family and friends – I am good, no worries 🙂 My apologies if you get this twice – I had an unexpected publication problem. Thank you for your grace.
