I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, and, technically, a grandma. ELEVEN years ago, Steve and I were young newlyweds, living in a 14-foot camping trailer in the mountains and saving money for our trip to South Africa. Now we have a house full of kids and far too many responsibilities. Life moves fast for us and leaves us wondering how we got here. I have a lot of opinions and make too many bold statements. But even though it can take a while for me to come around, I am good at admitting I was wrong about things. Like DVR. And Heelys. And Macs. And skinny jeans. And blogs. But one thing is for sure, we will NEVER get another dog.
