What’s in Your Crate?

What I Am Giving Up for Lent

Every year, I have friends and acquaintances that I don’t see online or at Starbucks for about 40 days. Why? Because they give up social media and coffee for Lent.

Salt n Pepa, Lipstick and Heels–Happiness and Turning 40

In 9 days, I will turn 40. People have asked me what my feelings are–am I scared, excited, anxious. I will say that 95% of me is utterly thrilled and excited. There is a very small part of me that is a little anxious–simply because some things are not how I think they should be. […]

“Together We Do”–Lessons from The Wiz

As I type this, I am watching NBC’s live version of The Wiz….. I have been looking forward to this since they announced it this summer.
