It's summer and the weather has been blissfully easy lately. I've been trying to get outside as much as humanly possible so it only makes sense to head to the park with the pooches. One of my absolute favorites in town is Loose Park. It's 75 acres of beautiful rolling hills with walking trails, play areas for the kiddos, lots of mature trees and a beautiful pond that is always full of...

I woke up on day two with a rejuvenated confidence. I felt good. Like really, really good. I'd spent the first day soaking up all the good ju-ju of people around me and it was impossible not to let that feeling soak in a little bit. There was an extra pep in my step.

The two on the right are Julia and Ignazio Simone, my great, great grandparents and the reason that my family is here in the US. They came over from Italy to start a new life and I so wish I'd had the chance to know them because I'm sure...

I am afraid of a lot of things... I'm afraid of heights. I'm afraid of talking to new people. I'm afraid of starting my own business. Most of all, though, I'm afraid of regret. That's why I've been trying very hard this past few years to push myself to do things I never would have thought possible. I started with eating right. Then I added some exercise. Then I tried runnin...
