I spent 45 days in this Georgia heat without upstairs air conditioning. Yes, it was hotter than Hades. Yes, heat does rise. And, I’m quite sure several kiddo fights broke out as a result of being hot and miserable. Sweat will make you do that. I know what it means when...

I haven’t spent a birthday in my hometown in nearly 20 years. Circumstances called me home, and while the reason was an unwelcomed interruption, it was right on time. It was nice returning to my Main Street, USA. Where the town square really is shaped like a square. Th...

It’s no secret that baseball is one of my favorite sports, and I mean all baseball – majors, minors and of course this baseball mama loves the peewee league. While I love my Atlanta Braves, my last few outings have been spent cheering on the Gwinnett Braves, a minor le...

My dad's youngest sister is in town for a visit. The youngest of nine, well 10 if we count my uncle who passed away as an infant, my aunt always has a fun story to tell about growing up in a house full of siblings. Our family gatherings are always loud and usually incl...

Sometimes you can't change your core, who you are deep, down in the unseen parts of yourself. I learned this a couple of entrees and six side dishes into dinner. Today is Easter Sunday and an unusually quiet one. The regular souls weren't around the first part of the d...

Baseball is one of my favorite sports. Whether it's the MLB or my boys' little leagues, I'm a baseball-ready mama. While I grew up watching baseball, I didn't get the concept of the game ball until my boys started playing. 

The kiddos have been playing since they w...

I kept my eyes closed while lying there, waiting. He grabbed my right thigh and whispered, "KD, let go." I felt myself tensing up. I took a deep breath, trying to relax and struggling to wait. I couldn't believe what he said next. You have trust issues.

Like most people left in charge of kiddos for any period, you tend to get worried when they are quiet. Last summer was no different, especially when the youngest pup of the litter commented that my bathrobe belt was perfect for the 'show.'

I didn't think much of it, eve...

I'm proud of where we live. In just one mile, I can pop into my state's largest shopping mall! Head 30 miles north, and I'm hiking trails in the north Georgia mountains and enjoying breathtaking waterfalls. Just 30 miles south and I'm being ushered to my seat at the Fa...

Sundays are my second favorite day of the week. It's my soul day. Since I was a little girl, I remember leaving for church only to return home to a house full of wonderful smells - potatoes, greens, beef roast, chicken, cakes, pies, you name it. Sunday was a day to fee...
