Notary Musings:

"...Walking with Sunshine in your Heart" -Sharon, Germany

During a chat with my best friend Sharon, she shared some personal wisdom and inspiration. “You should always be walking with sunshine in your heart”. This thought really resonated with me as an attitude of facing your world and finding the joy in your environment and the people you surround yourself with.

First Grandbaby!

In January we invited baby P into the Carter family. We're in love! I'm sure this is not news to any of you grandparents reading this.

At 2 months old he is really developing his personality. He's smart, vocal, and has such a lovely nature.

Being a modern blended family, means there are 4 sets of grandparents... so 4 Grandmas. To distinguish myself, I've decided I will be called 'Grandma Cookie'.
