Lipstick and Lies

October 11, 2014

Have you ever had a reaction to something someone did or said that was so strong it surprised you? Not a trigger, that's not what I'm talking about, but a gut reaction of NOPE that blindsided you? That happened to me Friday morning while trying to …

Photo Friday: Ray of Sunshine Edition

April 26, 2013

It's Friday so that means for many of you the weekend is just about here. For me it just means more of the same, but that's alright-I'll have to get back to a 'real job' soon enough. Incase your Friday isn't full of sun and happiness already, here, h…
