Wednesday was Ash Wednesday. Growing up Catholic, I always looked forward to the service and Lenten season. There is something so reflective and quiet about the season before Easter. As I've grown and developed in my faith, Easter has become... Continue reading

Meep! I can't wait to hear more about your business :) Maybe I'll have to fly down to Vegas to attend a party ;) That dress is darling on you.
