“Making an effort to be mindful and present is not always enough. Action over effort triumphs each time.” Dear Universe, Last weekend David and I headed to New York City for a quick getaway.

   “Take time to notice the things others are overlooking.” Dear Universe, I consider myself blessed because I notice signs fairly frequently.

Dry Bar

Dear Universe, Sometimes a girl needs to just sit at a bar. I’m not talking about the kind of bar that serves drinks with umbrellas and cherries.  I’m talking about a bar that you sit back, relax, and let the barista—or rather hairista—blowout your hair. A blowout bar. That’s right.  For a while now I’ve been wanting to try Dry …

Barbie? Is That You?

Angie Memories, New York City 0 Comments

Dear Universe, Growing up with two older brothers, I spent some time being a bit of a tomboy.  But there was one thing I did enjoy as a girl: playing with my Barbies. First came the Barbie dolls with all the clothing, shoes and accessories.  Then there was Skipper, Barbie’s younger sister, I believe.  (I never did take to her …
