10 Tips to Help Improve Intimacy in Your Relationship from a licensed therapist

These three things are interrelated and there is tons of research about how they all work together. To learn more about that, I encourage you to research it on your own. I find it fascinating, but it goes beyond the scope of…

Jon Hart Design Luggage

Whilst navigating the airport on a recent trip sans kids, Mr. T and I finally acknowledged we need to invest in new luggage. Honestly, I love bags so much that it’s been a challenge for me over the years to commit to one brand that could take me from weekenders to wheels up.

Here’s a slew of glittery goodness at varying price-points… Here are a few other things I’ve either purchased for Spring 2017 or…
