The Good In Social Media

The Good In Social Media

The reason I enjoy social media is because of all of the inspiring posts. My phone is filled with screen shots of posts that ignite something positive in me.

What to Pack When the World Burns

What to Pack When the World Burns

Less than a week ago the hills around my home were on fire. On Wednesday we were told to prepare to evacuate.

How, When and Why Do You Rest?

How, When and Why Do You Rest?
