Sunday Mise en Place (Sept. 11 to 17, ‘017)

It’s another Sunday, that means it is Mise en Place day. A weekly spot for me to ramble about life, universe, and everything. Or, more accurately, life, the blog, and podcast. Same-sies. It was a big week for me, with another big one on the way. So, without any fuss, let’s get into what’s going…

Zyler’s Birthday Top 5 at Age 7

Green Onion’s Birthday Top 5

Whelp, I am officially another year older, at my age it has lost any special connotation.  I think my kids are more excited because there is a chance of cake today, but they did wake me (early) with a couple beautiful handmade cards.  To keep with my blogging tradition started on Alexandra’s, then Zyler’s birthdays, I…
