2012 Year In Review

Facebook thinks the biggest moments from 2012 happen only when I’m wearing a Dirndl. Ummm…no Facebook. A�I like Dirndls, but I wear other clothes. I was curious when Facebook enticed me to see my top 20 biggest moments of 2012. A�Did the social media monolith get my most memorable right? A�Well from the looks of […]

Blink And I’ll Be Gone

I’ve been struggling to write a blog on a focused topic. A�I need to write a blog, but I’m lagging, and not just jet so. A�My life is so much chaos. A�The way I’ve thought things would happen in my life is not so accurate. A�The way things have happened? A�It leaves me…stunned. How have […]
