  • Our children are the reason we Relay

    Each year, the American Cancer Society hosts its Relay For Life fundraising event in cities across the nation to support the fight against cancer.

    Teams of supporters gather for this overnight event to raise funds and walk all night to show their commitment to finding a cure for cancer.

  • Grace Notes

    I'm not sure if this comes under the category of TMI (too much information), but sometimes I scream in my sleep.

    I don't do it often and it's mostly a muffled sound, but every once in a while a nightmare elicits a good yell in the middle of the night.

    The other night I dreamed about a pile of long, squiggly black snakes inside the vegetable crisper drawer in my refrigerator and one bigger, lighter purple-y snake that actually didn't look too healthy.

    In my dream, my dad grabbed all the snakes in one hand and got rid of them.
