& Happy Mom’s Day

Love my mother so I wrote her a poem. Every year I write her a different one. This year’s just came with a slideshow. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. 🙂 She’s my first best friend. I didn’t pick her, she picked me. She’s changed my diapers, wiped my snotty nose and…

& Happy Mon(Daè) -002

The Steelers didn’t make the Super Bowl this year so I didn’t watch it. I figured I’d catch the commercials on Youtube and I’d flip to the channel when the halftime show was on and boy it didn’t disappoint. Bruno and Bey killed it! It wasn’t like I was expecting anything less. Let’s just say…

& Tinder, Love and Comedy

Today I deleted Tinder for the third time in the last whirlwind of a year. Tinder was an experiment and a lazy effort to put myself out there to explore what else the world had to offer while I was taking a break from my junior high sweetheart. An article in Cosmo intrigued me about…

It Truly is a Happy Mon(Daè)

Happy Monday! With Thanksgiving around the corner, I’m in the business of counting my blessings. I’m learning that sometimes I may take things for granted and the things about life that frustrate me, may be someone else’s fairy tale.
