My Heart

It's been a tough year in more ways than most of us choose to count. What do you miss most? I miss traveling and concerts and movies with friends, breaking bread together with friends.

How Hard Could It Be?

After the newlywed phase of my marriage, we decided to try and have a baby. How hard could it be? Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. You do what comes naturally and, nine months later, there’s the bundle of joy.   Except it didn’t happen that way. We had to [...]
