With all the turmoil in my life over the past year, it is incredibly easy (and common) for me to forget how good a life I actually do have.
My life is clearly not perfect, and I do not have everything I would ever desire, but sometimes that’s ok. As we like to tell our [...]
Well, it’s February. My Christmas decorations have been put away for over a month and my house is dark. I’m another year older. A new year has begun. It has been downright cold in Alabama this winter (8 degrees, really!?), and my AU Tigers just lost the BCS championship game in January. I’m not in the [...]
What does social mean to you? In my college days, social meant that I got to dress up and go to a party. We had a social chair who planned all kinds of wonderful activities. It meant getting out of the dorm room and having fun with sisters and/or friends.
Now social has become [...]
February is the month of love. A time for romance and engagements and marriages.
I want to talk about divorce. But I promise I don’t want ot ruin the mood of the month. I want to expand on it.

Over the holidays while visiting my family, my crew took a quick jaunt back in time (at least my husband and I did). We took our two girls to [...]
“Who wins?” my good friend asked her husband a year when she relayed to him my story and probable divorce. “Penney is the right answer,” she said, without waiting for his reply.
I was happy to have her tell me that, happy thinking at least I would have friends through this very trying
time. And [...]
I Love Christmas
I love everything about it: the Christmas trees, the lights, my special decorations the children made in preschool, our Advent calendar, and, of course, Christmas carols. I love to tell my children how each thing we decorate with and the songs we sing points to the one who shed his [...]
A part of me wants to complain about how difficult it is to buy Christmas presents on a tight budget, to whine about how difficult
it was to toss the Christmas tree on top of the car by myself (with kids in tow), to bemoan how overwhelming it is trying to get everything done between [...]
I think as soon as my oldest child was born I realized that it takes a lot of guts to raise a child. I used to think that once they left for college I was somewhat going to be able to relax…a little bit…maybe. All you veteran moms with adult children can stop laughing at [...]
