Pennies From Heaven

Since my husband’s business is focused on roofing, siding, gutters and windows, the weather is his master…or his mistress, depending upon how you look at it.

Back To Work

It’s tradition at my work that after one of us has a baby whether you’re the new mom or new dad, we generally hold a little lunch where we can celebrate the new birth. I am quite fond of the way that my work celebrates all the little things like birthdays, goodbyes, and new babies…
