As these unusual times continue, I’ve decided to combine my blog posts for May and June. The month of May was rather stagnant. Not much changed from April to May. Days rolled into weeks, with little variation. The month did bring reasons to celebrate including Mother’s Day and my son’s first [...]

Ups and Downs

March and April were a whirlwind! In a lot of ways it felt like these two distinct months abruptly ran into each other this year. For that reason, I’ve decided to do a combined blog post covering off on the ups and the downs of what was March and April 2020. As we entered into

I love celebrating my birthday. I love turning another year older and hopefully becoming a little wiser. As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, July is a month filled with birthdays. Both my dad and I share our birthdays in July along with a number of my friends. Although I enjoy all the [...]
