As a mom of three kids, I have a confession to make. This is not going to be easy to say, but it needs to be said. I don’t know what the heck I am doing. There I finally said...
Long before I had a larger-than-life daughter, before I had two creative and talented stepkids, before I even knew my husband was walking the earth, I had my first baby: a fur baby.  She came into my life at a...
