Where Did I Go?

If you are a follower on my facebook page, you may have seen the post I made about compiling a “30 before 30” list of things to accomplish in the last six months before I hit the big 3-0 in January (look for that post tomorrow!). Well, as I was sitting here thinking about what […]

A Crack in the Armor

It started with a whisper. A small hardly noticeable hum. “Something’s not right.”   A tiny barely perceptible inclination. But it was there.
