Summer in Paris

The summer of 1986… I was seventeen, the summer before my senior year in high school. My grandparents took me to Europe to visit my Aunt and Uncle in The Netherlands and my friend Birgit in Germany.

Arts n’ Crafts

If you ask my nieces (and sometimes nephews) what they want to do at Aunt Wendy’s they will say, “Arts n’ crafts!” What kid, old or young, doesn’t like to get creative?!

I think we all have the memories of that “in-between” stage… not quite an adult, but you want… Continue reading Faith, Trust and a Little Bit of Pixie Dust
