7 things Scarlett O’Hara taught me about life

On the anniversary of Gone With The Wind, I thought I'd share an updated version of this post. I am a huge fan of the book and the movie, particularly Scarlett O’Hara. So much so that I used to read essays and college thesis papers that deconstructed the novel and detailed character analyses of Scarlett! Many women, particularly feminist, would question my admiration for Scarlett O'Hara. … [Read more...]

Not my normal type of topic, but it is certainly one I have read about, observed first hand and discussed with my husband at nauseam. My husband always says that there are two things that the French are undefeated champions at: luxury goods (clothing, hand bags, and perfume to … [Read more...]

ROI of Relationships

I have never been one to have a large group of friends. I had a small group of friends in high school and college and that suited me just fine. They are not the same people that I am friends with today, but it's hard to tie me down to a place, so that makes sense.
