Why do we write?

When I was a young girl, I first discovered literature, then classic literature…and then at last, poetry. The right poem will change a person’s life. For me, that poem was the Charge of the Light Brigade by Sir Alfred Tennyson. I believe I was in the seventh or eight grade the first time I heard…

Project 365, Week 8

I can’t find any photos from February 21 through 24. I was able to get a photo from the bachelorette party I attended on February 25, so that will just have to suffice.

Project 365, Week 9

              February 26: pedicure prior to my friend’s rehearsal dinner! February 27: The bride & I while we were getting ready for the wedding. I wish I had thought to ask someone to take a picture of my husband, my daughter and me, but I was so tired by…

My Project 365 Ended Early

I have dropped my iPhone4 about a zillion times. The funny thing about this is that the only damage was a few chips in the glass…the apps worked fine, the internet had no issues and I was able to text like nobody’s business. However…the telephone feature didn’t work so well anymore. I say “telephone feature”…
