This week, the Senator and I did a really fun thing. We got together with my parents and hosted a little get together for a dear friend of ours, Sean Burrage, who is the President of a University in the Southeastern part of our state.

Can’t believe it’s been almost six months to the day since I have posted here but it certainly wasn’t for lack of something to say. Quite the opposite actually. So much has happened since March that I thought I would do a brief re-cap to catch myself up to speed. Ha. Our daughter wrapped up her first season playing club volleyball.

Can’t believe a month or more has passed since I last posted here. Life is busy. My children our busy. The Senator is busier…especially since we are heading into the Legislative season soon. We took a breather from the busy last month and hightailed it to New Mexico for Thanksgiving. Such a beautiful place. Peaceful. Serene. Wishing I could find the peace of that place … Continue reading Peace
