Not Like Other Moms

  “You know what you need mommy?” my seven year old asked me one morning while I was pouring his Cheerios into a bowl shaped like a bulldog. Any parent knows that when you get an opener like that the conversation could go in any direction imaginable. “What,” I asked him, “What do I need?” “You… Read more »

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
