“A rose by any other name…”

It’s that time of year again.  You know the drill.  Somewhere between the excessive amount of gifts, obscene amount of cookies, and the turning of a calendar page (or, in my case, the recycling of one calendar and replacing it with another), most of us have at least a moment of panic.

Here we go again…

Posted by Nichole on August 22, 2011 in Life in General |

I’m not sure if anyone will notice, but this is a new blog.  A completely new blog with a new address. I recently switched hosting services and lost all my old blog posts.  But that’s okay.  Sometimes you have to start over, right? So, thanks for stopping by.  I hope to post at least once […]
