Growing up my mother, sister and I were true moviegoers. Every Saturday, we were at the movies and to this day I watch a lot of movies, but not at the theaters as much. Well, I go to the movies, but it’s generally to watch a kids flick. You know how it goes, you have kids and things change. Thankfully, there is the Library(my #1 source), pay per view, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV and so many other outlets that make movies available quickly.
One of my favorite movies is …Continue

A run to CVS to pick up Marlboro Reds and a pregnancy test. Yes, that's how it all started. I couldn't believe my eyes. Sitting in the toilet, starring at that faint pink line. It was so terrifying. It was unplanned, unexpected and I had no idea if I was ready. But really, who is ever ready…Continue

I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl. It's like I'm sharing a tiny piece of my history with her. For example, she has my old baby ring that she wears on a necklace, as well as some of my old baby clothes that she uses to dress up her stuffed animals. And recently, she hit the ultimate jackpot when my mom came across my old Raggedy Ann doll up in the attic. She was so excited to have…Continue
