12 Budget-Friendly Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Can I share a little “love” confession with you all today? As much as I love “love” I’m not a super romantic person. I mean, I love the actions of showing love like cleaning for someone, paying for someone else’s coffee or lunch, or holding doors open.

Conversation Starters for Your Next Date Night

The Top 3 Reasons You Should Stop Reading a Blog

Lately I’ve gone through a phase of disconnecting from some of the blogs I read; some of them I’ve read for years. There are no hard feelings between me and the other bloggers, no offensive posts or disagreements, there’s no reason really other than we just don’t jive anymore. Once upon a time we clicked, and…

How to be The World’s Worst Sister
