My Boss Got Mad

My boss (one of them) has her own blog and often puts up her opinions and observations about life in general but more specifically, things that trouble her. Yesterday was one of those days. She posted up a blog about the church’s negligence in regards to caring for children who are falling through the cracks. Continue reading “My Boss Got Mad”

Oh my gosh, they were everywhere.  Continue reading “Vacay on the cheap”

Get with it guys… love is in the air.

One thing that I have learned from married life is that you never stop dating your spouse. Just because you have made those vows and started down the road to marital bliss doesn’t mean that romance can be put away. If anything, the stress of marriage and children should push us to step it up even more. Continue reading “Get with it guys… love is in the air.”
