• A friend said to me this week, “dang girl, your life takes massive turns really fast and really often.” I’m a thrill seeker, a lover of change and a huge fan of Dole Whip. Hmm one of these things is not like the other. Moving on. I had a rather serendipitous week. It

  • A few days ago my boss told me about an encounter she had while she was at a restaurant. She was saying that while her and her husband were eating dinner she noticed a cute couple across the way that were also enjoying a meal. That is, everyone was trying to enjoy a meal. If it
