Summer-time Declutter

Jenny/ July 19, 2018/ Family Life

  I am constantly amazed at how much stuff I accumulate over a year.  It seems like I just cleaned out my closet a week ago (though in reality I know it wasn’t, lol) and when I cleaned it yesterday I had 2 big trashbags of clothes to give away.  And thus it goes for the rest of the house.

Letting Go of Expectations

Jenny/ July 14, 2018/ Family Life

A Broken Flower

Jenny/ June 22, 2018/ Family Life

Jenny/ June 16, 2018/ Family Life

  I was tremendously blessed as a child to be born into my family.  I had an amazing Dad & Mom who loved me so much.  I had 3 brothers who tormented me and 2 sisters who tried to keep me out of trouble (without much success I might add).  But the one I want to focus on today is
