This past week, I’ve felt like I was constantly trying to catch up… and not matter how hard I tried – I didn’t feel like I was making significant progress. Have you ever felt that way? For example – the beautiful kitchen counters I showed you the other day? Yeah – they lasted until I […]

Our GPS brought us right to the front door and within 30 feet of the entrance for an underground parking garage. Here is a gentleman […]
