Asking "Why not?," instead of "Why?"

Here is where I share my ever evolving life as a wife, step mom, mom and  journalist. 

From social / digital journalism, to lessons learned from years as an assignment edtor to home and family can be found  in my writings:  On the News DeskSoDig Journalism, and Mistyical Me

<p>This may be the best batch of meatballs and tomato sauce I have ever made! I used the #pressurecooker! The flavor was intense. Meatballs were moist. #sogood #pressurecooking #meatballs #momlife #homemade</p>

<p>Sock Hop Day! I barely finished the poodle skirt in time. I made the poodle using adorable print fabric, black with white paw prints sewn onto white felt and decorated with silver glitter puff paint, which is also the leash. #momlife #sockhop #sewing #sewingproject #poodleskirt #50sgirl</p>

<p>Zinnia looks like a whole new dog after her grooming! She smells so good and is flaunting her pretty bows! Groomer thought the breed mix we were told when we adopted her was all wrong. Now that we see her, we completely agree. #petgram #petgrooming #dogmom</p>
