deep down I always knew.

When I was little, I always wanted to be some famous actress.  And ever since I saw the movie Spy Kids 2, I felt like some way, somehow, I was meant to be famous or influential, or well known for something. And I finally figured out why I had that lifelong gut feeling. I figured it out […]

thanksgiving look, for less!

The days leading up to a drive home are always the most stressful.  For some reason, no matter how many times we have made the 18-hour trek from midwest to northeast, it’s always a little daunting.
