It’s the beautiful story shared by Simply Sadie Jane, about a simple act of kindness by her son and the lives that were changed by one small gesture. Continue reading “Small Acts of Kindness Day”
Fear is a funny thing – and by funny I clearly mean not funny at all, in fact it’s terrifying. Not a profound statement, I’m aware, but how do we fight a case of the fears that seem to creep into our minds during certain seasons of our life?

I used to frequent the adventure lane in Washington…on a random week day I’d pack a few day trip essentials and B and I would be off to visit somewhere we’d never been. I’d heard so much about the charming city of Chattanooga so off we went! Continue reading “Birthday Day Trip in Chattanooga”

But even on the long days you could never be a bother Continue reading “Brooks Turns 3”
