A look back at 2017 here on the blog is always a fun way to end the year. I re-cap the first post I published from January to December for the year ending—2017. I often lament about time being elusive. This can’t be more profound than at the end of another year and the fresh beginning of a new one. Continue reading “A Look Back at 2017”
December has melted before my eyes like an icy snowball in mid-July. I guess that’s the way it’s going to be though. Time speeds up every year, so why not make the most of each moment (even the ones that aren’t so great).
Tis the Season of memories and not all are good ones…

We’ll end on my (and your) hopes for 2017. My theme for the year is building a dream…a year to build a dream on…because why not? Continue reading “A Year to Build a Dream On”
10 Tips to improve your Christmas post divorce, is something I think will help anyone coping with co-parenting issues over the holidays. One of the most difficult times of the year for divorced and broken families is undoubtedly the Christmas Season.

Say what? I know it’s the middle of summer and if you’re like me, you’re still shy about frolicking in your bikini.
