I wrote today! part 2

I wrote about Utah again today.  That was fine.  I like my writing better but writing about Utah helps pay for my daughter’s braces! ha  Now to do more writing so I will leave you with these words of wisdom from William Wordsworth, the greatest poet ever, in my opinion.  Seriously, google him.  I love… Continue reading I wrote today! part 2

What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Jo’s Rolls

Disclaimer: I only knew Jo for three years, sadly.  I wish I had more to report on her but anyone who knows her knows she is just truly amazing and snarky and kind.  I will talk about her more someday in my “Other Mothers” series because there is a lot to say. And when someone… Continue reading What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Jo’s Rolls
