Visit my home Savannah and the muses will whisper sweet nothings in your ears to the point of creation.
Even my cooking skills have improved in Savannah. You hear Paula Deen?!

(Here is a secret for a happier marriage... if you have a teen that you can trust...mine is 19 and adores his baby sister... make also certain that such teen works full time… because the teen of course needs to be tired to want to stay home on a Saturday night… use that teen at least twice a month …put on some lipstick and paint the town red with your significant other…when you get home you will be glad you did)

Sunday afternoon I spend it with a few friends just watching the day go by with kiddies swinging at our hips, blankets and toys spread on the floor and we watched them play.

You are doing a heck of a job my friend and your strength and determination are admirable and palpable.
But there was a group of wise, strong and talented women that said it best…
