One of the activities my husband and the guys in his family like to do every year is camping. They try to go in spring and fall each year and they bring the potty-trained kids with them. So far,...
One of life’s greatest mysteries is the mind of women.  We've mastered the art of psychological warfare,  our search skills rival the best CIA agent,  yet we'll soften like a roll of Charmin for something as simple as seeing a stray dog. Sometimes,...
I recently went through a breakup with a best friend. Someone I'd known for more than a decade. Someone I thought about and still think about every single day of my life. It was and still is one of the...
