Life Is An Awfully Big Adventure.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning with my heart pounding. It’s as if I’ve been running up a hill, or maybe running away from something or someone. Maybe I’m running away from myself ....more

The Story In My Heart.

Some of the stories in my heart to tell you aren’t completely delightful. Although this one mostly is. We went to the Big E on Friday ....more
