This is one of my few pet peeves. I am a privacy freak. In fact, before I began the blog, I had never done any type of social media. All those years without Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. I still don’t care about any of it. But I understand the concept. Social media for a […]

Have you ever been to a point where you just want to walk (run) out the door?  Or you seriously tell yourself life would be easier if you could just leave?  Or break up?  Get divorced?  Quit?  Or run as far away as you can from wherever you’re standing?  Heck, how about running back in […]

Gallina vecchia fanno buon brodo. Cosa vuol dire?  Una gallina vecchia ha la carne dura, e per farla ammorbidire, bisogna cuocerla a lungo; questo fa sì che il brodo venga più saporito.

Have you ever noticed when you walk out of the house for a night out, you dress for other women? When was the last time you dressed for your man? Call me crazy, but why would we dress for other women’s approval? Why do we need to impress other women? How many times have you […]
