Saturdays, who loves them? I know I do. Especially when there is nothing on the agenda. But today was not one of those Saturdays.

I love quiet. I like to talk, but when you grow up in a big family and then become a mom of a big family, quiet is not something that is found often. I don’t find the need to fill the silence with words. Quiet makes me happy, it recharges me! We have a balance… Continue reading A Not So Quiet Love
