If you must, then fall in love with someone who will remind you to breathe when the weight of your troubles weighs too heavy on your chest at midnight. Fall for a peace that calms your thunderstorms. Fall for someone who’ll talk you through an anxiety attack on a typical work day, someone who calls…

So you’re engaged, congratulations! Okay maybe you’re not engaged… yet. Either way, we all want  to look our best on our wedding day (those of us who want to get married anyway, I don’t want to make assumptions here). Finding the perfect wedding dress is an important part the wedding planning process. Seriously, is your…

No, I am not an advocate for vegan-ism (as much as I believe it’s a brilliant way of life), matter of fact I’m not even vegan. I’m just a food lover who is noticing a sad truth: as a society, our food choices are killing us. Not that you need them but here are some…
