My love affair with LOLs (little old ladies)

At first glance, I don’t look like I belong in a nursing home. I often get confused for ex-military (or current, for that matter) or law enforcement. I have a buzz cut and broad shoulders. I have a confident stride and firm handshake. But in addition, I love little old ladies.

Back to School

Back to school. Doesn’t in evoke great memories? The smell of new reams of paper, freshly sharpened pencils, brand new sneakers … I love this time of year. It’s such a build up for kids, parents, and teachers. For us there’s an added layer; but that just means a little more prep.
