What Are You Wearing?
We women often ask each other, “What are you wearing?” We spend so much time, money, and effort on what we wear. What we wear often makes us feel good about ourselves.

A Happy Ending

I wasn’t going to talk about resolutions. Studies show about 80% of people who make them fail. I’ve been there. Have you? So why do we make them? They tend to reveal how flawed we are that we even need a resolution, and the idea that we can’t keep them further demonstrates that point. I…Read More
