The Creative Entrepreneur's Dilemma

I've had a fairly open calendar today, as I'm prepping for a trip that will take me out of town for five days. The day was pretty calm, but this evening is bustling. It's almost a whirlwind of activities: reviewing the schoolwork that needs to be done, trusting my husband to feed and care for […]

You Were Created For A Purpose

My husband and I were grocery shopping yesterday. That's a rare occurrence. Usually, it's just one of us navigating the aisles of the store. But yesterday was our first day back from vacation, and we had to return the rental car, so it just made sense to get the shopping done on the way home. […]
