Birthdays often bring me to a point where I begin to reflect on life and how I've lived my life over the years. My son is about to turn 14-years-old and it is a big deal to this mama who really has no idea where the time has gone, and how her sweet little boy has grown into a very tall (and still sweet, kind, and caring) young man. It honestly just breaks my heart watching my children grow up so fast. It really does make me stop in my tracks and ask myself what am I allowing into my life, ...

Wow, I can't believe it is December already. I am actually gearing up to finish another semester of college and also take a blogging break for the month of December, so this will be my last blog post of the year.

Well, my daughter purchased this new kind of coffee and I wanted to try it. My coffee finished brewing and I went to go crab my "cup of joe" - it was late in the morning and at this point my mouth is watering and I am craving this cup of coffee because I knew that this day was going to be a long day.
