This March, my daughter, who is doing a semester abroad in Costa Rica, had plans to take a trip with her friends over Spring Break to a few neighboring countries in Central America.  Since it coincided with her 18th birthday, her father and I sent her the funds as a bi...

February 17, 2018

I am coming to believe that February is many a single person's least favorite month of the year.  I think it starts with the expectations (or lack thereof) that come around Valentine’s Day versus the actual reality of how February 14th usually goes for those who have n...

August was an incredible month for my daughter and me. We truly built some great memories before she headed off to college that I will treasure for a lifetime. But it was also a difficult month. With her departure for college, I now have to think seriously about what i...

July 1, 2017
