Have you ever stopped to think about the food we eat?  Like where it comes from, what its made of and how’s it handled?  Honestly, I never gave any thought to any of it either.

I’ve been a mom now for over 4 years.  Ryley turned 4 this past February and it was bitter sweet.  Its amazing and sometimes sad to watch your kids grow up.  I love watching her and Avery grow but at the same time I miss them when they were babies.  I wonder if Im doing…

BBQ

Today Im Silent.

I have no words for how much my heart hurts for everyone in Sandy Hook/Newtown.  I am silent today to remember that every moment is precious.  Today I will hold my children tight and pray for the families that can not.  I will pray for peace and healing for the parents, family and friends of…
