Please Stop Referring To Having Kids As “Starting a Family”

I haven’t blogged in awhile. After the crazy busy year that was 2019, I needed a break.

Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye

Last night, I was sitting on my couch playing with my dogs just like any other night. Even though Miles is 70 lbs and almost as tall as I am (that doesn't take much), he's young and he still thinks he's a little puppy, and he likes to stretch out in my lap while I… Continue reading Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye
