Lessons from my mom

May 9, 2014
Always make time to play with the kids. (Or grandkids.)

Safe and Loved

May 8, 2014
Once upon a time in Seattle, a little girl went downtown with her mother and baby sister and had a grand adventure. They may have shopped at Frederick & Nelson’s. They could have sipped milkshakes in the Paul Bunyan Room. But the excitement meter started spinning like crazy when the car broke...
