We’re Back!

We’re Back!!  Believe it or not, I’ve gotten several messages asking if I still had a blog!  The answer is yes I do and I agree with all two of you that I need to update it more!  So here it goes… For the first time in forever (bonus points if you can name that...

Red, White and Blue

Fireworks, BBQ and the Red, White & Blue. Sounds like the typical 4th of July weekend celebration for most people. I love that my heritage is Irish but what I love even more is my country and being an American. Sometimes it may feel like our Country is crazy or...

Walt Disney World

    Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. It’s the happiest place on earth, allegedly.  After our trip there last month, I’d really hate to see the saddest place on earth.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many tears and toddler tantrums in one place, just ask...
