Lost in Relaxation OR My Husband Occasionally Looks Like a Hurt Puppy

Domi wandered downstairs looking lost in his own home. It was the first day of no school in three and a half years. I had told him to also take off work for a few weeks so he could just relax and enjoy himself. It was time for a break for my boy. He was…

Popular and Best Aren’t Synonyms

As a teenager, shockingly, I was really good at remembering that being popular and choosing what was best for me were oftentimes very different things and that choosing what was best for me really outweighed caring whether I was popular or not.

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I have found it ridiculously hard to meet people and to make friends post-graduation and pre-baby-having.  Domi and I both are blessed with some of the most incredible friends.
