However, we are supposed to be our spouse’s comfort and support. Through sickness and health, isn’t that what the vows said? It can be two different […]

I’m starting to feel it… November is in full swing and every morning my bed feels increasingly comfortable. I want to stay curled up under the covers and sleep. It now takes 2-3 cups of coffee for me to start to wake up. My mind and body are getting ready for shorter days, lower temperatures, and
If you are like me, you probably have a hard time getting enough exercise in a day. I recently jumped on the activity tracker bandwagon and found that when I am deep into my work, I get less than 2000 steps in a day!
