2.5 Months in the Making

This post is 2.5 months in the making…  I was holding off writing it, hoping that I would have a big update to give… but I don’t. So I’m writing today to give you a non-update. Two and a half months ago my life was turned upside down when I lost my job of 17 years. It...

Goodbye Summer Nights

Goodbye Summer Nights

Anyone else already missing those lazy summer nights? The nights you don’t have to think about what to pack for lunch for the next day. The nights you don’t worry about putting out clothes in the evening to avoid the morning rush. The nights when you don’t even think...
