Crooked frames. Semi-empty shelves. Longing for pickles and barns. That was life. Or so she was told. She was advised to accept things as they are and will be. No need to change things outside of her control. Thing is, according to all those around her nothing was […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
