Fun with Food

I’ve been doing a little experimenting with my food lately…actually I guess you could say I’m just actually paying attention to my food and how it makes me feel. I’m trying to figure out which foods make me feel great and which foods make me feel meh. One day for breakfast I had eggs, asparagus, peppers & onions, with some…

21 years

At this time, 21 years ago today, I was on my way to the hair salon to get my hair done for my wedding. It was a whirlwind romance, and on this particular morning I was letting myself feel the things I had been too busy to let myself feel…such as, is this the right thing to do? Have we…
