A crazy, beautiful journey

  Newborn, infant and toddler. Prior to having Boogie, those words were interchangeable to me. There really couldn't be that much difference between the stages, right? Wrong! I can now relate the changes to the stages of a sunrise. Newborn is like the darkness right before dawn; you know that things are about to change,…

Inspired

  The journal I ordered last week arrived today, and I was like a kid on Christmas.  I couldn't wait to rip the cellophane off and put pen to paper. I could feel my thoughts revving up and I wanted to get them down while I could. In between peeling chunky little hands off of…
