It is nice to be back in the blogging chair after a much anticipated (and much needed) vacation. Did I miss anything? Haha. Kidding. 

I can’t believe that the month of May is almost over! May is always a busy month in the Hammer household. Mother’s day, Felix’s birthday...

Fond of phrases, I often say: “Teamwork makes the dream work.” But I would be remiss if I were to allow Brendan (my former husband) and I to take credit for being the only members of the “team.”

By the time you read this, Brendan will be on the way to Dallas with our so...
