What Are You Afraid Of?

If someone ever asks me that question, I follow it up with an inquiry of my own. How much time do you have?  You see there’s a master list of things I’m afraid of with subcategories, footnotes and addendums. You have the animal category that includes my #1 arch nemesis – s-n-*-k-e-s -, a word […]

Are You the Favorite?

I was sitting with my daughter Alaine at Grace City Church in Lakeland, Florida the other Sunday when Pastor Andrew asked, “Who in here knows you are your parents’ favorite?

Babe, We Need to be Prepared.

OMG. We Got a Dog. 

It was a Saturday. I was baking butchering macarons. Like me, Eric was trying not to watch the Carolina v. Clemson football game, but both of us were unsuccessful.

My Mom Zinged Me.

My mama can be so stinkin’ funny and not even mean to be. She is typically so calm, quiet and sweet that you’d never expect these hilarious one liners to come from her. But every now and then, she’ll zing you.  Before I get to the zing (it’s at the end and worth the wait […]
