Welcome!

Click a few links. Sip some coffee. Drop me a line.

You’ll find the things I love here: boys, books, laughter and tales of long-lasting love.

You won’t find politics or lima beans.

I do not love them.

While I was puttering in the kitchen early Thursday morning, I heard my husband laugh out loud from an adjoining room. He continued to laugh and came into the kitchen to read aloud your column. As empty-nest parents of (only) two sons, you have reminded us of those years when our house was full of noise, shenanigans, gross things, and much laughter. We miss those times. I have long been a fan of the Front Porch, and now my husband is too. Thanks for making us both LOL yesterday morning.

I thank you–and your family–for writing so beautifully about the everyday things and events of life in a way that lifts our spirits and helps us to smile at one another and at life.
