Not even my hair was safe from this “letting go” phase I’m in. As we clean out the closets, the garage and the basement for our move, and as the weather heats up, I wanted a shorter haircut.

Losing Grammy

Losing Grammy

Last week was really, really hard emotionally. My Grammy passed away.

Grammy was born in Chicago. I knew her as an awesome baker, someone who drew the family together with cookies, popcorn and brownies. She was a super-hard worker, and she was always there for her four kids and their kids.
