My husband and I are in Punta Cana, our very first trip/vacation together as a couple to anywhere outside of the US in our 17 years of marriage.  Don’t judge. ..that’s how long it took us to fill up our 5 gallon empty water bottle.  Well, 10 years to save the change, 7 to roll …
Yesterday afternoon, I met Adriana Trigiani, author of numerous books and one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever had the honor of meeting.  My sister was one of the people who organized the book signing affair which took place at the John C.

First off, I want to apologize for being a day late and a dollar short with this post.  It’s the first time I’ve missed a Monday morning since starting my blog but given that Monday was Christmas, hopefully you’ll give me a pass. Now that you’ve forgiven me, I would like to take the opportunity …
(In case you didn’t have enough to do ONE week before Christmas) -If money doesn’t grow on trees, then why are banks called branches? -If you were to drive down a road going in reverse but WITH traffic, would you get a ticket? -Bunnies don’t lay eggs, so why the heck does the Easter bunny …
