Disclaimer: this review, unlike others, is completely unsolicited… For over a year now, I’d switched my primary shoe for work to Converse All-Star hightops, and the last of that was the black monochrome leather variant.

Tomorrow is our 18th anniversary. For some, that’s a huge milestone…for others (like my grandparents, married 65 years before grandpa passed) it’s just a drop in the bucket. Either way, there are some things I’ve learned along the way. Marriage isn’t about feelings.  Emotions ebb and flow. Romantic feelings don’t keep you together…sometimes it requires […]

No, it’s not just her disproportionate-sized head, or the eyes the size of a horses’. Nor is it the fact that she is neglected by her parents and travels off on her own as a little girl (yet can’t find the obvious thing right behind her). No, there’s far more to her than all that. The one […]
