Unto Us A Dream

June 4, 2017

On the 15th of May I received a text message from my mom: Uncle Bob had a stroke the evening before. Things looked good though. They were able to get him to the hospital fairly quickly. She’d keep us up to date, but there was little we could do but wait for the time being.…

New Beginnings

With the new year came New Beginnings. But the mind boggling thing was that this year Olivia was invited to it! I cannot tell you how shocking it is to me that my Sunshine is turning 12 this year! Where has the time gone? For New Beginnings Olivia was introduced to the Young Women by…

Maverick

April 25, 2017

One spring-ish day at the end of January Wyatt had a brilliant idea that our family needed a puppy. Actually, he started cruising the KSL adds for one almost the day we moved in. I was apprehensive of a puppy, but finally relented. That is how Maverick came to be the newest member of the…
