There were tremendous achievements on Oscar Sunday, but we shouldn’t forget that the struggle is far…

Labor of Love- A Thank You

Blue Ridge Escape

A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to enjoy the beauty and rejuvenation that only the outdoors can provide. Those who know me well, know that I am NOT an outdoor girl. I enjoy spending my weekends curled up with a good movie, reading a good book…or writing one. My escape along the…
