BEING A STAY AT HOME MOM

Two years ago I never would have imagined myself as a stay-at-home mom.  It’s something I’d always wanted to do, but I was a single mom from the time my first daughter was born until she was four years old.  I had no choice but to find a 9-5 job so that I was able…

SNEAK PEEK, VOL. 1

I have a terrible habit of starting too many projects at once.  My brain overflows with ideas and my impulsiveness tells me to act on them all right away in fear of one of those ideas slipping away. An even worse habit I have is not finishing any of the projects I start.  This character…
