Nobody dreams of being a step parent…

Nobody dreams of being a step parent.  No little girl sits in her room, playing with her Barbie dolls, and makes one of them a stepmom.  Nobody marries with the intent to divorce so they can then remarry and make someone a step parent.  I knew all of this when I began dating a man with […]

5 Things to Leave Back in 2019

In less than a week we will be in a whole new decade. A decade – how is that even possible? I can’t believe how fast the 2010s flew by, and have been reflecting a lot lately on what 2019 brought. Now if you look at magazines ( or the dot com version, because is […]
