Sunday, October 5th, 2014 in About Me

Clouds Utah’s summer sky was gorgeous this past summer, thanks to the rain. Rainy summers remind me of Maryland where I lived 6 weeks to 12 years old. Now if we had just had extremely loud thunder storms with the power going off it would have been perfect. Oh and fireflies. Which I heard have […]

Lets leave where I left off, summer has been great, but also has had a lot of this: One of my kids is really good and leaving passive aggressive notes under my door. And one is really great and climbing on things and screaming until someone gets her down. Summer has been full of reading. […]
