Good News: NRCA Win!

This was my dessert, which the lovely Angela N. Blount ate in my honor at the NRCA ceremony. So I was hanging out at the YMCA pool, rockin’ my visor hat and counting the four heads of my children to be sure none of them stayed underwater for long, when my phone rang. East coast […]
