  • I found myself at Muldraugh Elementary School.

    It was just more than two weeks ago that I attended a ceremony for the closing of the school. When I originally had heard the school was going to close, I had planned to make a last visit there somehow. The next day I got a Facebook invite to the event I hadn’t known was going to take place.

    The film follows five couples as they prepare to bring babies into their lives, chronicling their unique experiences, from the joys to the heartbreaks.

  • Beginnings are the sweetest. An innocence permeates the beginnings of friendships, professions and professions of love, an innocence that takes the heart to a different place. I have stayed in that place often enough and long enough to know its magic.

    We live better; we love better; we think better; we are better in the beginning.

    Some beginnings are firsts and other times, we begin again. But all beginnings require courage, because they are filled with risk.
