Women’s March: The Amazing Day the World Dissed Trump

In case you missed it, the Women’s March took place on Saturday.  History was made as millions of people, across all 7 continents, joined together to throw global shade at Donald Trump.  It was an epic “fuck you,” the likes of which we may never see again.

Solo Water Vacations | What Gets You Wet?

Recently, I’ve been thinking about all of the solo water vacations I have enjoyed over the years. Water, more than any other thing in life, calms me down.  Staring at hit.  Walking beside it.
