Cyber Shopping Shame

I recently read an article about a couple’s incredibly beautiful date night. They got a babysitter, went out to a bouge restaurant for drinks and then took an Uber to, wait for it…TARGET!

The Marriage Masks People Wear: When It’s Just for the Kids

I recently read an eye-opening, thought-provoking and scathingly honest article by a woman who was unhappy in her marriage. Despite not feeling appreciated, or like the marriage was filling her love tank, she persevered, maybe drinking an extra (heaping) glass of wine here and there, or eating an extra bowl of popcorn here and there, […]
