We Have a Shared Need, You and Me

Last weekend I whisked myself off to Mexico City to spend some time with Naomi (& her family); it was a well needed girl weekend for both of us (we did include my brother in law some too, cause he’s awesome when it comes to good conversation and encouraging words, so every now and then…Continue Reading

Naomi is here…

Naomi and I are taking a short break from our between friends series, since she and her family are actually staying in my home as we speak; and since our next set of posts are going to have something to do with our own cities, we figured that maybe she should actually write while she’s…Continue Reading
