What you don’t know, won’t hurt you…

It’s been over a year since I’ve blogged. I used to write daily…then days became weeks, which became months. Then bellebottoms sat vacant, like the sad little bakery on Bridesmaids. Only no one had written any crude words over my name. So there’s that. Since that day long ago when the words stopped, lots changed. […]

happy birthday Stevey!

Today is my brother Steve’s birthday….and oh how I wish I was up in Portland to celebrate with him!
