Arts, Crafts & Us

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not an artsy person. I have never been. In fact my dad loves to remind me of that one time in kindergarten when I had a nervous breakdown because my homework included one simple instruction: to draw a pig. I was 5 years old and convinced that […] Read more…

Request for a Mammogram – REJECTED!

A few weeks ago I preached about the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness month and asked you all to schedule your mammogram appointments ASAP!
