I have this thing where I like to make a friend of mine laugh. It's a good goal. Seriously. And it'd be great if I could remember how this started, but I can see the big 5-0 approaching and yeah, that's not going to come to mind. Several months back she told me about an… Continue reading phew

Celebrate Your Gifts

Have you ever had that moment when you're reading something, but misread it? Scrolling through facebook this morning I misread an ad that said, "Create Your Gifts" as "Celebrate Your Gifts". Creating your gifts, the things you give to others in celebration of the person whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or Kermit the Frog day… Continue reading Celebrate Your Gifts
