MLM is a controversial topic.

I’ve always been a social gal, and these days, I’m especially grateful for my friends. They are my anti-anxiety drug, my mood-lifters, my restored faith in humanity. Making plans to look forward to and spending time together negates the other moments that I want to crawl into a blanket fort and hide from reality. Take

I’m a big fan of a good old list, so this week I’m cutting myself a break from deep thoughts (yeah, right) and making a gratitude list. I’m theming it a bit – it will be things that make my crazy life feel just a little bit easier and joy filled. Here goes nothing. Grocery
When I was very young, I found an ad for a pen pal in the back of a Humane Society magazine. (I know this sounds weird, but bear with me.) She was my age and lived in Australia. She referred to her mom as “mum” and we sent each other coins from our native lands.
Honey and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday so it seems weird to be talking about divorce. However, that’s where life is right now. We know a couple who is in the process of ending their marriage. This is a couple we’ve known through the majority of our marriage and their decision to end their
