Welcome to our Summer Camp Guide! As a child, few things are as memorable as the rite of passage of summer camp. Sleeping under the stars, swimming in the lake, making fire-roasted marshmallows, singing silly camp songs and making new friends are all the elements needed for a magical summer. I didn’t meet my best friend, Roxanne at summer camp but our pregnant mothers (pregnant with us) did meet one another in a public restroom after randomly striking up a conversation about their due dates. Think the rom com romp Sweet Home Alabama-baby in the bar scene. I find...

Ombre September 14 started out as just a normal day. I drove Dylan to school, kissed him goodbye and told him that his brother Zakkary would pick him up from school that day. After dropping Dylan off, I returned home to begin my day. My 25 year old son Zakkary was a graduate of Evans High School and was pursuing a professional career in the music industry as a talented singer-songwriter and brilliant guitarist.
