To whom it may concern.

I look for inspiration everywhere and today it came from a close friend.  If you’ve read my past few entries, it’s pretty clear that I’m in desperate need of a little hope or sunshine to spread some light on a dark situation.  Today, my friend reminded me that such hope comes from within.

I was happy this past weekend.  Simply happy.  My weekend was similar to amazing memories of days gone by, only more mature and somehow better than the beginning.  I went to Toronto where I gorged myself on menus of yummy treats and shopped until my heart’s content.  It was amazing.  It was me –- it … Continue reading

What a girl wants…

My Pen is Mightier than my Sword–It is my Savior

My beautiful friend is the proud new owner of a shiny sparkler.  That’s right, she’s engaged, and I couldn’t be happier for her.  She is one of the most deserving people I know and love has found her.  Soon she will be a Mrs. and my girlfriends and I excitedly wait to stand by her … Continue reading
