Last week marked the 70th Anniversary of D Day. This means that the Second World War is as distant an event to my daughter as the Civil War was to my parents. That’s kind of mind-blowing, isn’t it?

  1. What an honor to see this post highlighted here. 18 years of parenting, you learn reams and reams of hard, tough, and easy lessons. What I would do differently, is hard to say. The only feeling I”m left with as they leave for college, is that I loved them with my entire heart. Thank you so much… xo
