New Hobby: Horticulture!

Remember “Uncle Robert”?  (Our very dear friend who’s just like family.) Well, Robert has a BEAUTIFUL garden.  Seriously.  All raised beds, trelisses, manicured perfection – looks like something right out of Colonial Williamsburg!  And for Liam’s Fourth Birthday Uncle Robert built, delivered and taught Liam to plant his very own garden. They poured the dirt,…

He’s FOUR!

We still can’t believe it. More and more when I look over at him, I see a big boy where my baby used to be.  I don’t know where the time has gone.  His personality is blossoming – and he’s FUNNY!  (I mean really.  Comic timing and all.)  He sings all the time, he makes…

SNOW!

Now, as many of you know, I was born and raised here in Virginia Beach, VA.  So I know whereof  I speak when I say that we don’t normally get snow.  Oh, sure – we may get a dusting now and then, but it won’t stick… if it does, it won’t last on the ground…

Has it really been a month?

Ohmigosh – has it really been a month since I updated Liam’s Blog?  Wow.  Time flies when you’re having Holidays! Let’s see – what happened? I guess there were really two big blog-worthy events: Christmas! We hit Aunt Eva & Uncle George’s for Christmas Eve.  Grandpa was there, too, and Liam had a blast with…

Why I have the best. job. ever.

Well, of course, you know that there are TONS of reasons why I have the best job ever. But this morning was a huge reminder of that…coming on the heels of a fairly stressful week. I got a lovely smack in the face – a very sweet reality check – a heartmelting attitude adjuster. Most…
