I weighed around 172-pounds as a kid.  I weighed more than my dad, sometimes borrowing his t-shirts to wear to church.  So picture me at 11 years old wearing a hyper-color t-shirt carrying a stack of books, now add the glasses and headgear.  Yup.  I was that girl.  I struggled with my weight until I […]

JD grabbed my hand as we walked toward the exact coordinates of where we married a decade ago.  The air was balmy, but the breeze made the walk enjoyable, especially to the sounds of crashing waves.  So much, yet so little has changed in the past 10 years, but we both realized that that precise […]
