That Tiny Cottage in My Dream

A movie date with my husband yesterday and on our way home, the conversation goes like this: Mommy: Dad, I saw this funny video like a gag TV show wherein a man would put a cute piglet inside a faux grinding machine that would produce sausage.

Great Attitudes

This book changed me. The first time I met my mentor, she was tall and intimidating. I was unsure of everything, the career that I chose and to where my life was heading.

  At 33, my mind’s still fresh of hundreds of memories with you.
