Yesterday morning I got up and the sun was shining. My dog gave me sad puppy eyes so I put her in the car and we went to the dog park. I'm lucky enough to live near a huge dog park, so we had a nice long, brisk walk through the park. I got my... Read more

Sometimes life sucks. It's true for everyone. This year has been one giant sucker punch to the emotional gut for me. Earlier this year my best friend's 10 year old son died in a tragic home accident. I loved that little guy, and told e... Read more
