What makes you happy?

The Comment Section Now Works!

By | June 17, 2015

I have to admit that I have been a little frustrated lately.  Each time I visit this/my site, I see “0 Comments” under my headline.  Day after day after day.  I sometimes wonder if anyone is ever visiting besides me.  Well, the other day I decided to comment on my own post to turn that zero into a… Read More »

Do What You Love and Love What You Do

By | June 16, 2015

Have you heard that saying before?  It’s the “Life is Good” motto.  I try to incorporate it into my life whenever I can.  Too many times we are rushing around just getting things done (food shopping, cleaning, chauffeuring the kids, etc.).  But it’s really important that we include fun things in our days too – even if it’s… Read More »
