How am I doing?

How many times have we seen, "How's my Driving?" on the backs of trucks? How many times have we asked someone, What do you think? How do you think I look in this? How do you feel about that? We are always asking for opinions of others and wanting to find out where the minds of people who are around us are.So, I've seen this commercial, where the question was asked of Parents?

We are constantly comparing ourselves to other women. We look at those magazine covers or women that we see walking down the street, wishing our clothes would fall across our body as they do on models.

A New Chapter

This past week, I realized a dream that I didn't know was possible.  When I started blogging, I had one Inspiration and is Ree Drummond.
