    You sing it your way and I’ll sing it mine…

    A blessing to start your day

    Because life’s too short to have five jobs and only 5 cats….

    Although I was stricken with guilt for about 30 seconds on 500 different occasions this summer, I did what was necessary to snap myself out of it (have a mango margarita). In spite of the guilt, I had an explicitly wonderful summer! A summer that [...]

    Bluebonnets at Hummingbird Farms
