10 Things I’ve Learned About Being Single (That I Didn’t Know 10 Years Ago)

Thought I’d do a little #TBT post today back to 2004.  The year I turned 21. To set the stage… I was living in Winfield, Kansas, getting ready to graduate early with a music degree from my little Midwestern college, while working as an accompanist to help pay for...

10 Things I Learned In El Salvador

Ok, now I officially feel for all of the dear friends I ask to boil their entire lives down into ten things they have learned.  I just returned my trip with Unbound to El Salvador, and I could barely narrow a week down to ten!  Ha, seriously though, I have so many things that...
