Your Biggest Influence

This morning as I sit down to blog and start thinking about what topic will I talk about today, I decided to go to Lindsey’s many papers about her autism. The first one I grab will be my blog . I’m looking at a letter that she wrote to her Aunt Linda. My sister. For…

Rainy Day

This Thursday will mark 6 weeks of my salon being closed. I started out feeling like I had no choice but to close. I did close one day before the state officially closed Wisconsin salons. I miss my clients so much. I get phone calls from them asking “are you sure you can’t cut my…

Looking for Calmness

When Lindsey was young our days consisted of multiple therapy appointments, many Dr. appointments, teacher phone calls, and paper work.

We Can Laugh About It Now

“There is no time like the old time, when you and I were young.“— Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. When Lindsey was a senior in high school, she did a house-sitting job for some family friends. I didn’t want her to feel lonely so I stayed a couple nights. We were having so much fun watching…

Bon Appetit

Lindsey is enjoying her time at home cooking foods from all over the world. From paella to sweet and sour chicken with mix veggies and rice. Who would of thought with all the food sensitivities Lindsey had, that she would love cooking and eating so many different foods. Before Lindsey went to Spain, she had…
