Growing up, I often heard “tough cookie” when I didn’t get what I wanted or things weren’t going my way.  Interestingly, the scenarios that spark the phrase “tough cookie” often make the best stories and hence the title of my blog.

My hope is that you not only enjoy reading about my version of life, but that you might, on occasion, find that something I’ve written makes you think a little deeper about the seemingly everyday occurrences in our over-scheduled lives.
