• Never get a roommate! Noted. Nahh. The only issue we’ve had so far was her taking too long to make a move in Rummikub. We let it slide. Plus, look how cute we are. Onto the real lesson learned this week. We went out to dinner with two of our favorite people on the planet. We had

  • Those of you who travel know how wonderful and life-changing it can be. Those of you who travel also know how difficult and challenging it can be. Listen, I absolutely love having the opportunity to experience the world and all its beauty with the love of my life. And sure, our

  • I have so many friends who are obnoxiously generous. Any opportunity that they can give, they usually do. Whether its time, money, resources, gifts, the last donut…anything. I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the most selfless person, or even close to it. And if I
