Are you a Giver or a Pleaser?

This title might give you some mixed messages, but this isn’t that kind of blog. In an effort to give you a little more of my immature silliness, I thought of it and I left it.   So— are you a pleaser or a giver? These two things are not the one in the same. ...

Is it Fun?

I hope this finds you refreshed after a blessed Easter and a week of enjoying some fun.  I feel like if you don’t know me outside of this blog you might think that I am a pretty serious person. I am and always have been pretty intense— fiery, confident,...
