To the Aquarium #iPPP

This past weekend we took our daughter to the Ripley’s Aquarium! We were packed, our friend’s picked us up, and we were off to the big city!! There were warnings that the crowds would be big, the lines would be long, and we may lose our children in the chaos. But we thought, “It’s WORTH…

GAH… the snow

Snow. There’s so much of it. I like snow, generally, and enjoy the beautiful white fluffs that hang off of the trees. I love to look out the window at the twinkling layers across my lawn, the sheets of white covering the fields, and the ice coming down from the peeks of the house. But…

An Open Letter to Food

But this chick right here? Isn’t following my toddler vision. Apparently when you’re…

Sugar, Holidays, and Puppies Crying

I’ve finished my holidays. I feel like one hundred puppies are crying inside my soul. For two weeks we slept in, hung out in our pajamas, built towers, watched movies, put together puzzles, played in the snow, ate candy too early in the morning, and enjoyed each other. It has taken a long time for…

I Won’t Shank You……Today.

“You’ve been awfully quiet lately Leighann, are you sure everything’s okay?” Her concern was genuine and from the heart. My co-worker is sweet. But I don’t confide in co-workers. “I’m fine, thank you for asking.” I plastered a fake smile across my face and tried to force the lines of exhaustion off of my face….
