Desert Mermaid

Her amazing mom and I met in Germany when she was just a wee lass and now she is a graduating senior?! Weren’t we just making candy maps of the US and skeleton diagrams with veggies? The world took our families in different directions but our friendships held strong. So when her mama asked if […]

Let’s All Be Well

I asked my thirteen-year-old to build a rainbow. Something big that we could display in our front window that would hopefully bring a smile to someone’s face as they pass by.
