Being a 23-year-old single girl on Valentine’s day certainly warrants some writing when the month’s theme is “From The Heart.” But as I eat my third Cadbury Creme Egg of the day, I realize that Valentine’s Day has passed, we can all focus on Easter, and I should write about a topic that actually means something [...]
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Having a healthy heart has multiple benefits, with the biggest being life. Four out of five heart-related deaths can be prevented by making heart smart choices. Try to do something different every single day to make your heart happy.

Ok, I have to be honest. My husband is the best gift giver ever. Even when we were dating, he gave the best gifts. His gifts have always spoken to my heart, and have always been something that I desired. Among some of the best gifts he has given me are a pair of diamond [...]
Sad truth: I’m the resident emotionless, unromantic robot-like being within my group of friends. I don’t give into the mushy holidays (however, if you really wanted to send me flowers – I wouldn’t give them away), I rarely cry at movies, and I’m not entirely convinced that a kiss has the ability wake up a sleeping princess.

Memories… we all have those fond memories of home and growing up. Whether it was a family night of playing games, watching the Chicago Blackhawks (OK, that’s mine!), or baking yummy goods like apple pie, our memories comfort us. When we leave the comfort zone of our childhood home, many of us venture to [...]
from The Help
These are three of the best lines ever written. If you haven’t read the book The Help, please go get it. It’s not just the words but how they are said. When Aibileen Clark comforts Mae Mobley with these words you can hear her heart in [...]
It happened again today. It happens several times a year. It breaks my heart every time.
Well, this is an upbeat start to a Valentine’s Day blog, isn’t it? But it is timely, too, because who do we care about in this world most: our family and our friends. And when either of those hurt, [...]
