Well, after 8 long days, LIPA fixed our block and the power is back on. It’s been a long road and one that’s been life changing. When they said Sandy was going to be bad, I didn’t buy it, and then Monday came, and the winds were crazy. You could look outside and see it. […]

She’s finally here! A little earlier than expected, but that’s okay by me : ) Delivery went smoothly. My husband said if labor was a profession, I’d be a pro, lol. I’ll be taking some time away to enjoy this little treasure–I say that now, but we all know how tempting the internet is ; […]
