When I hear the word “cute,” I don’t immediately think of frogs. But this image of two frogs taking shelter from the rain with a reassuring arm on the other’s back, made me pause and smile. This looks like a love song. Let’s take care of each other.
This is one of my favorite ads this season. I'm not going to spoil the ending, but suffice it to say that to me, it almost doesn't matter if he becomes fluent enough for his goal... the important thing is that all this effort IS the language of love, and that is more than enough....

I saw a story last night that simply made me giddy: A couple who had been dating for a year just found out two weeks ago that they were each other's pre-k "sweethearts!" According to People.com, Amy and Justin actually met each other online and at a later conversation in their relationship, Justin mentioned that he always liked her name... Continue Reading →
I enjoy sitting in an airport because I get to observe the different folks around me. I've mentioned this before, but the pure joy I get to witness when a person hugs their missed loved one makes me really happy.

I was raised in an unconventional household. My father was the homemaker, and my mother was the breadwinner. When I was younger, I was a little bit jealous of friends whose moms baked cookies. Not that my household is any less cool, but it was different. And being different is not always ideal when you're... Continue Reading →
My grandparents own a convenience store in a busy part of town, where we have to “help as Sales Personnel” for part of our summer vacation.
