“Chattanooga is something you can have any way you want it…” I am so blessed to share this city with my three children: Dallas (13), Lillie-Mae (9), and Mindy (8). We enjoy the mountains and the valleys that make up the geography of our city as well as the metaphor they stand for in our lives.

The Traveling Mom Guilt
