Good Morning,   Well, the past two weeks have flown by for me and as some of you already know, our son joined the family on January 15th.  So my weekly update is a few weeks late this time around but I don’t plan on having another child anytime soon, so we should be back on schedule for a while! ...

Good Morning,   Regardless of your political affiliation, there is something that wells up inside and makes me proud to be an American on election day.
