Life is like a story...written 1 page at time. Knowing how chapters can sometimes unfold messily, I wanted to create a place where I can share my own life’s journey. Including all the things that I love AND all the things that I have learned. And, through that sharing….maybe help you avoid some of the same potholes and detours that I have fallen into.
