My Christmas presents from Steph made for fun retreat time in the morning once I realized I was never going to actually write again.
Just before leaving, Steph came over to my house to visit Nick and the kids and we finally got a picture together.

Author:

I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
