A Day in the Life

April 23, 2018
A day in the life of a parent is never quite the same two days in a row. Some days are better than others, when everything seems to be running smoothly without any hiccups. Other days… things are really hard.  I’m thankful that on a typical day, things are somewhere in-between.

Introduction to Shirley Blake

April 10, 2018
Hello there, my name is Shirley. I am a wife and mom of two boys, a 5-year-old and 1-year-old. I am a proud daughter of two immigrant parents. I was born and raised in Oregon, the marvelous Willamette Valley. I grew up in a small-rural town where there were challenges, many opportunities, and a lot of growth.
