Happy Friday

It’s been a week and if you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen my frustration with daycare. Although they are not necessarily on my favorite people list, they did garner some goodwill when I opened Lucas’ folder and found this adorable picture. I have no idea who the other babies are but there’s no mistaking … More Happy Friday

Happy Friday

I started my day by hugging a Detroit police officer. It’s too easy to forget the good. The great thing about my job is that I get to see the good more often than most.

Happy Friday!

I adore the Captain America nursery selection but look forward to reading the books to Lucas … More Happy Friday

Happy Friday

A new Roosevelt model for me – at least for now. Week one (day 3) of working motherhood and whoa – it’s going to be hard. My colleagues have been wonderful, I came back to some of my favorite pictures of Lucas posted around the cubicle and my new office space is ideal; however, it … More Happy Friday
