Weekly snapshots of my girls and life in general in 2015
Last weekend was an all-girls one with Richard being out of town for most of it. It’s easy to be alone with the girls now that they’re older. Most of the time they were nice and sweet but there were definitely tense moments of constant bickering and fighting between the two of them.

You have to love one another; you only have each other.” Funny, how we often morph into our own mothers.
