Hello 2011

Tweet Image by jypsygen via Flickr Well here we are – it’s 2011 and the end of a decade that certainly did not end on a high note for a lot of people not only in this country but in the entire world.  Why does it seem like it was so much easier 30-40 years […]

How to Sparkle in 2011 by Trashing Your Old Issues
