    Starting… the week with a terrible migraine on Sunday and suffering a migraine hangover on Monday.  It was so miserable.

The rest of the week my head ached off and on. Joyful… that the ukulele that the kids got from my Grandma Pansy came.  It’s blue and so cute.  They love it.  Logan learned how to play in fourth grade with…

Celebrating… one year seizure free for Logan.  It’s completely surreal to me that he hasn’t had a seizure in twelve months after how many he had in 2018.  I remember thinking this day would never come.  I couldn’t imagine him going a month without a seizure, let alone an entire year.  It took five medications to find the one that has worked for him long term, and the one he is on now took a leap of faith to put…

Along with the fall, of course, comes some preparation for the colder…

{pc: Aunt Roxanne} Having… my sister over along with her kids on Saturday.  It was a really fun day, and I was so glad to spend the day with her.  She even curled Carly’s hair while she was here with my new wand from Ulta, and Carly looked so darn cute! I enjoyed loving on my niece Romy & seeing all the kids snuggled up on the couch together watching a movie during movie night.  They’re just so sweet together.Trading……
