Today’s post is being a bit different than normal. I’m currently laying on a rock in the middle of the GSMNP.
While trying to deal with my rodent phobias earlier in the year, another concern came to mind. If I freak out over something going wrong when my life is mostly good, how will I handle myself when life goes wrong?
Music has played a larger role in my life over the past few months than normal. Like most, I have my favorites, but I’m not the kind to have it playing in the background.

My niece, nephew, and dad all have May birthdays! We did lots of celebrating this month, including 8th grade prom for my mini-me and the little man earning the top (all around) award for his grade. Both kids attended new schools this year, and I love to see how they are thriving! Continue reading
