I’ve had enough sledding and hot cocoa! I am ready for spring! My friends in the southern states have already started gardening. I follow their Facebook posts with garden envy, while my garden is still under a blanket of snow (sigh)! In November, my family and I moved from Kansas to Iowa. This year will be a new adventure; I have new soil, a new climate, new zone and new challenges. I can’t wait!

As the mom of three young boys, I travel more than any mom wants to you.

This week, I have found myself on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii…and yes, this was for work!
