Happy National Dog Moms Day!

Today is National Dog Moms Day, so I've emerged from beneath the large pile of work and other adult responsibilities that I've been buried in for the last few weeks.

8 Things I’ll Never Be “Too Old” To Do

I'm less than a week away from my 35th birthday, and it's a little nerve-wracking because I always thought 35 sounded old. When you're 35 and up, a lot of people think they can start setting rules about things you're now supposedly too old to do. Well, I won't be following any of those rules… Continue reading 8 Things I’ll Never Be “Too Old” To Do
