My husband and I try to have lunch together at least once a week. He and I are fortunate enough to work only a few blocks apart, and that Tuesday lunch is a treat. It is wonderful to see him in the middle of a busy working day.…Continue

Each year my spouse and I try to do something a little different for Valentine’s Day. Although our schedules can be hectic with work, the kids’ extracurricular activities, housework, etc.; we strive to make a date night in the midst of madness, particularly for…Continue

It must have been a particularly bad dream.
My son doesn't have bad dreams very often, but this one was awful enough for him to leave his bed, make his way down the stairs and traverse through the dark all the way to our bedroom. I woke at the sound of our door opening. He wasn't crying, but I did let him…

…is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Reunited and it feeeels so gooood!
It’s back to school time here in VA. That means teachers are back in their classrooms tearing down paper and setting up bulletin boards. To be honest, the first week they are usually sitting in meetings and trying to figure out the expectations for the year, oh and reuniting with work buddies. Most of the time teachers are as excited to see one another as the…

Taking a toddler to a restaurant is really a crap-shoot. Sometimes he’s golden, others he wants nothing to do with it. Usually, if we can keep him entertained, we’re good. On the days he’s on point I feel like I should play the lottery. We usually choose venues that are: louder, don’t mind a mess and have chicken tenders. Yesterday, we met up with friends from work and some of their kids to surprise and celebrate one of our friend’s change from one school to another. She will be missed and…Continue

Hello, dear ones! Please join me for a word study on motherhood. Even if you are not a mother, you can use what you learn in other relationships. You are an example to the children in your life, whether that is a niece/ nephew, or kids in the youth group at your church. Also, I encourage all Godly women to find…Continue

When I was a child, I never understood why my Mother always wanted to know where I am, where I was going, when will I return home,etc. I remember she always told me, she would take all the pain in the World if she could, so I wouldn't have to feel hurt, sickness, sadness.. I never really understood that concern of hers, that constant fear and protection, She would tell me:" Just wait till you have your own kids, you will understand it and you will be the same. it's how Mothers…Continue

Peace and Love on this Sunday morning.
It has been an extremely sad week for Humanity but is it really anything new? And the fact that I can so easily think that isn't that even sadder?

how to spice up your love life.

It has been some time, since I've last checked in. My life over the last year has been tumultuous to say the least. Trying to find employment has been ridiculously hard, and once unemployment ran out, my only option was to dig in and try to survive with my writing. I'm reaching out to you, because I so need support. As crazy as it seems, my grandmother always said, "If you don't do, you don't get," so here goes.
My newest contemporary romance, AT LAST, was accepted as a…

My Mother set me up with a guy once when I was in high school. He worked for her, and at the time I didn't realize I was being set up. It was well-intentioned, I have no doubt, but ultimately very weird and awkward for me. So let's not talk about that.
At some point, I tend to ask my married friends how they met their partner. And then they get to tell their origin story. Most of these tales have been honed over the years of the relationship to become coherent stories. I like the…

My son is in love with one of my coworkers (well, as in love as a five-year-old can be). Whenever he visits my office, he gives her lots of hugs, tells her secrets and brings her chocolate from my candy drawer. She adores him and gives him lots of attention, playing her part in his little crush.…Continue

Recently, I became aware of a deep betrayal by a person very close to me. A betrayal that spans the entire relationship with this individual and has been the root of several years of confusion, anger, tears, and anguish. In coming to terms with this, I have discovered that key members of my social group were aware of the deceit and chose to remain silent. When I confronted this circle…Continue

My son often tells me that when he grows up he wants to come and work at my job. He has plans to sit in the cube next to mine and be on my team. He also wants to help distribute candy when the team needs a little pick-me-up on rough days and have lunch with me every day.…Continue

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?
If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse 3 days a year. (Valentine's…Continue
