My monumental 12/12/12 centered around a single word: mama. Spoken several times by Tatum, mothers everywhere long for their child’s first clear and situationally appropriate verbal acknowledgement of their role. I could barely contain my joy.

A milestone of my daughter witnessed firsthand! Not a video confirmation or testimony from my mom but something I saw with my very own eyes as it unfolded in front of me….multiple times. =)

I am in Memphis. Merry Christmas, Tatum. Adam, everyone misses you so very much, and it pains me to the core that we’re apart. Next Christmas will be different, I swear to both my kids and everyone reading this.

What a tremendous blessing. I hope to share with you countless other blessings– and memories– during the holiday season. Expect frequent posts.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,


About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
