    I thought I had planned for the flu season better than an obsessive compulsive bride planning for her wedding day. Despite my efforts, I was delivered a bombshell at Urgent Care on Sunday.

    I don’t think you’ve seen pure joy until you’ve watched children sled downhill. The big smiles and laughter make for a magical moment. For a little while, life is perfect. It’s one of those moments that I wish I could freeze….before my kids start whining about being cold or have a tantrum about the fact that their shoes are getting wet in the [...]
