A Little Step to Big LOVE…

I’m giggling to myself right now thinking of my high-school years and my first love. C’mon now, most of us had a first-love in high-school. Oh how I thought my heart had broken into a zillion shards the first time he and I broke up. I say the first time, because in high-school, we broke-up, … Continue reading A Little Step to Big LOVE…

Trust me…

“Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired. Smile, even when you're trying not to cry, and the tears are blurring your vision.
