HOWEVER!! Candy Can is not chocolate. While it’s not chocolate it’s candy that serves a purpose! With November being so busy I’m just trying to stay sane, (okay, that ship MAY have sailed already!) AWAKE! I want to actually finish one task before I start the next. This month I’ve had the worst case of what I like to call ‘the shiny’s‘ I start wiping kitchen counters, but I put away something that belongs in…

  • Handwrytten Notes!

    Y’all know me. I write like I talk. I tend to get ALL excited! I YELL, I also tend to ramble and make dramatic pauses….. In my head I imagine little characters like Miss Spell Check running around with her arms flailing about screaming “she doing it again!!” “she doing it again!!” There is mad choas, arms are flailing, there is screaming, she and Mr. Punctuation are knocking into each other.

Okay, so that last one was mostly our kids. “You guys aren’t aging in reverse!
