So glad my son has good taste in music.

This was a few weeks ago at Guitar Center. We spent the day together just hanging out doing whatever. Super proud of how talented and smart he is. He gets good grades in school, he’s kind and respectful and he’s very responsible for his age. I couldn’t ask for s better kid ❤️

Sometimes I’m sorry isn’t closure.

Today was exhausting but good. My sister moved out this morning, I had mixed emotions about it. I enjoy having my family around but I also like/need my alone time. It seemed like my house was always messy and that caused me to be anxious, but I guess it couldn’t be helped with 7 people and 5 animals under one roof. I spent the … Read More Sometimes I’m sorry isn’t closure.

Urn Necklace 

Tonight when I got home from work, I received a big yellow envelope from my Grandma in Alaska. In it contained some gift cards and two smaller white envelopes with “Papa” and “Craig” written on them, father and son. I knew the contents would be their ashes.

This little light of mine

He was such a funny curious little thing when he was born. His big blue eyes always searching my face and smiling when his eyes met mine.

I still sleep with a dream catcher above my bed.

You would have been 73 years old today. I often wonder how my life would have been influenced had you been here to guid me as I grew up. What advice would you have given me?

She made me cry


This year has truly been one of the hardest years of my adult life. My marriage was shattered, my family was a reck and I was betrayed by two people that I loved and cared for very much.
