Falling for Fall

It seems impossible to get excited about fall when we’re in the middle of summer.

Ringing In the New Year

Do you make New Year resolutions? I can’t say that I do any more. It just reminds me of years past when I’d make plans to diet or not date guys who were bad for me. Ha, how times change! With age comes wisdom, right? That said, there are some ideas I’d like explore and projects I’d […]
