I just love March Madness–and not just because I am a basketball fan. There is so much one gets in return from watching the games–the inspiration, the motivation, the thrill, the entertainment–along with all of the great basketball.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting my family in southern Indiana. It is always great to see everyone to catch up on what is going on and to get the real visual and physical that you don’t get from pictures and Skype. My great niece, Addyson, who is now 14 months old has changed […]
