    Wings

    Sabrina will officially be moving out on her own this weekend. No more college dorms in which one can barely move, no more parking permits, and no more mom telling her to keep her room picked up when she's at home. My girl is finally at the point in her life I never thought she'd be… not because I didn't…

    It’s Been a While!

    I've missed sitting here and "chatting" with you guys!
