Birthdays are an entirely different ballgame than they once were. My Dalton will be turning FIFTEEN on Monday. Though I am so incredibly blessed that my deliciousness is still here with me, birthdays are a reminder that the sand in his hourglass is moving far too quick...

Taken during the 2016 Ride4Gabe — Maine-to-Mobile, this photo captures just how awesome Gabe Griffin is. Yet, besides the celebratory thumbs up and beautiful blue skies, ther...

Almost 2 years later, this photo — from the 2015 RAAM Finish Line — is still my phone lock screen.

It is one of my most proud family moments.

So much is behind those tired faces; strong, determined,

exhausted @kartoone76; two brave, flexible, supportive kids;

Today I see a part of my family off, as together we begin Ride4Gabe III.
