Sights and Sounds
It has been such a busy and challenging year so far.  Many highs and lows, many, many activities, and not much down time. Today: the perfect antidote.  A much needed day off.  Some California winter weather (read: sunshine).  A trusty dog. Not much in my wo...

Cupcake Dreams
I want to be a kid again.  I want to tell stories the way my youngest daughter does.  I want to dream about cupcakes.  And I really, really want a Dream Teller of my very own. During dinner last night, Little T was devouring my homemade spaghetti sauce and ...
