Before I got married, I always imagined my future children would look like me: blonde, curly hair, blue eyes, and pale Irish skin. Of course, that vision changed when I married a Japanese-Brazilian who happens to be my opposite...
Ah. Shopping with children. It's fun, yes? Oh, that's right, it's not. To peruse Target uninterrupted is every mom's dream, yet we all know it rarely happens. A couple of weeks ago, it was a balmy 50 degrees in Denver,...
I have always loved Christmas Cards. Every year, I looked forward to the day when the very first festive envelope would arrive. I loved watching them pile up in the sleigh where we stacked our cards. We would go...
