For all the years I’ve been blogging, I don’t do too many local things with it. It took me four years just to tell people I was a blogger! I write a monthly article for our local magazine, but that’s about it. However, Michaela recently reached out to me about speaking at her and Ashley’s […]

It makes me feel all, “I’m so proud of my country!” Of course, it also helps that I’m not working, and I’m in complete relaxation mode. I’m afraid we won’t be celebrating with a […]
