My Daughter

Emily at 29

My Beautiful Daughter

Dear Em, This has been a weird season but the best part for me has been the few months we have been under the same roof again. I am sorry, not sorry, for the turn of events that left you jobless and homeless. I am sorry you both have gone through so much trauma and…

Emily at 26

26 years old is an age that seems different than 25.  I am not sure why.  You have been married for 3 1/2 years and you are making your way in the world.  I guess for me, when I turned 26, even though I had been an adult for 7 years, 25 feels young, but…

23rd anniversary of becoming a Mom

Today is Emily’s Birthday!  I made her scones even though she wasn’t home in the morning as the 22 years prior!  Then tonight Connor invited us to join them at Rain Forest Cafe for dinner.  One of Emily’s favorite restaurants growing up!  It was fun!  I will also say that is was a very odd feeling…
