Showing love is not just for Valentine’s Day

  Did you know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner?   Oh, right, you probably do, given the constant barrage of guilt-inducing, wallet-breaking, comparison making advertisements that are absolutely everywhere you turn.

Patterns of Love in Your Marriage

  When colors, shapes, and sounds come together, delightful patterns can be formed. You encounter them everywhere: in the clothes you wear, the furnishings you buy, the music you hear.

Miss Goody Two Shoes and Party Boy-30 years later

  I never should have been in the bar that night. It was like going into the grocery store when you haven’t eaten all day. Everything looks way better than it really is, and you gravitate towards the stuff that isn’t very good for you. And so it was the night I met my husband. […]
