to my cozy little home on the web, filled with every bit of encouragement, love, hope, beautiful things and whatever I think you might enjoy.

Here for you as a sister, friend, aunt or mom, whatever it is that you need, I'll happily stand in that spot.

I remember hearing someone once say “expect the worst, you’ll never be disappointed.” My first reaction is to laugh at most things that people say, and I did that with this too…but then I thought about it and, well, that’s not very funny at all.
