    My Person …

    This girl .. she gets me. She’s my person. (If you don’t know what this is from … we can’t be friends! Just kidding!) In Grey’s Anatomy the main character, Meredith, has a person who just gets her and understands her. Christina is her person. She just completely and utterly understands the crazy layers that Meredith has, and there is ZERO judgement from Christina. My person .. my Michelle .. she totally and utterly gets me… and has ZERO judgement for anything about me. She accepts me for who I am and knows my deepest, darkest secrets. We met in high school, and became extremely close in college. As we…

My friendships with these ladies have grown over the years, and without having our little…

    Be the Unexpected Friend

    Have you ever just had one of those weeks (or months!) where things are crazy hectic, the kids are sick, you have a million and one things to get done, and are just kind of blah? Well I have .. and recently. My two little girls have been sick off and on since December … it’s been a rough couple of months at our house! The girls had finally been feeling better, but then we got hit again over Easter! When our girls are sick (especially our two year old) she constantly wants to be held and have me next to her, which means the household chores and every day…
