If you are a Sex in the City fan, like me, you might remember the little episode where Carrie has writer's block.

As time goes by our lives change. We change jobs, friends, family. We even change our feelings. We are constant companions, Sharing our lives, family and love. We are incomplete as one.

3 reasons I ♥ my husband right now. He says, "No, Honey. The meat is dried out because it was a bad cut of meat, not because you over-cooked it in the crock-pot." He refuses to go to a strip club because of his moral beliefs when he is invited to a bachelor party. He... Continue Reading →
