My kind of people

My kind of people

We’ve talked about this before but it really hit home for me today. One of the things I love most about working for myself is that there is really no one to tell me what to do. My favourite part of THAT is choosing who I want to work with. I know, for others in...
Belonging to something

Belonging to something

This weekend we celebrated my cousin’s 40th birthday. If you’ve been around for a while now, you know that cousins are something I have plenty of! My Dad is one of eleven children, and my mother is one of five. There’s a lot of us. And when we get...

The future of girls

The future of girls

This morning while we worked, we had America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 11 (that’s like a season, in Tyra speak) playing in the background. Soon, watching took over as we gasped and WTF’ed our way through the first two episodes. I mean, we’ve come...
I almost didn’t make it

I almost didn’t make it

This fine Wednesday evening I was sitting here thinking that maybe this time I just wouldn’t make it with a new post. Nothing really to say. No words coming. Then I remembered that that was the whole point. I’ve skipped days, for sure. But there was no...
