happiness looks good on you

I'm back!!!  Finally!  Is it really Friday?  Seriously, this week is such a blur, but for a very, very, very good reason.  Now I would tell you all about my week, but this is the weekend and the first rule of the weekend is that you do not talk about work.  So I cannot talk … Continue reading happiness looks good on you

well the truth, yeah it hurts to say, i’m gonna pack up my bags and i’m gonna go away

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.

ohio, i’ll be home again

Sadly the day has come for me to hop on Megabus and venture back to Chicago.  I just wanted to take a minute to say that it's been a truly fantastic weekend, which I'll write more about later.  Yes, I know, it deserves an official.....
