Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed like you’re in quicksand and can’t get out? I know this happens to me every now and then.

Speak Up!


A friend of mine is hosting an event called Speak Up. It’s an intimate forum she hosts once a month where she opens up the discussion with a thought-provoking question.

Minor Accident = Major Block Party!

This post is inspired by a guest post I wrote for Hugh on his series 51 Weeks 51 Songs from the past.

I actually just discovered this song recently. I hadn’t really heard of Gente de Zona until their collab with Enrique on Bailando. I love the raspiness in their voices and their Cuban accents! Continue reading “Minor Accident = Major Block Party!”
