    For The First Time...

    I am approaching 40 and this is the first time I am living by myself. Partially. 3 to 4 days a week, I have my son so he makes up for the quiet nights and lonely days. It's nice to have my own space, do anything I want, decorate however I want. I realized that I like the...

    Good And Bad

    The Key To My Happiness...was Me :-)
