After last week’s blog, it seems as though my readers are more intrigued by the topic of sex than I gave you all credit for. So in keeping with that theme, I thought I’d share something my husband and I tried a few years ago. As you probably guessed, I am always on the lookout… Continue reading Love is Art
I’m a mom…who works…who writes…who cooks…who cleans…who sings in an acoustic duo…who reads about thirty-five books per year…who has to make time for everything in between. You get the picture.
