I am a self professed bibliophile, which is a fancy way to say that I love to read. I can't remember a time when I didn't know how. My childhood was marked by adventures to various bookstores (new and used) on a fairly regular basis. It is also something I look for as soon as … Continue reading Beguiling Bibliophile

I have lived in 5 different cities in the past 5 years (yes that's excessive I know, but I enjoy it). The best way I have found to get to know people and to bring people together is to plan a happy hour. "But I don't drink!" You may say.
