It’s been one of those weeks, folks, where complaint after compliant leaves my lips and my heart feels weakened by the hardships of this life. People have attempted to inflate my ego for the countless hours I have (and am) surviving without my spouse. Although appreciated, their kind words fail to encompass the multitude of […]
Although it’s March, for many of you, it still feels like winter. Most of my friends are posting pictures of snowy landscapes and adorable knit hats. I’m a sucker for an adorable hat, so I admit I feel a bit jealous as I scroll past these photos in my newsfeed. But let’s be real. The […]

Years ago, I attended basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, but, I didn’t see much beyond Lackland’s gates. Then, I was stationed at Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, Texas, and while there, my friends and I visited San Antonio at least a handful of times. We strolled the River Walk and […]
