37 Things I’ve Learned

Today I turn 37 (gulp).  Sometimes I still think I’m 17 (see above) but I sure have lived a lot of life.  But, God willing, I still have awhile to go! Travel as much as you can.  It only gets harder as you get older due to jobs, kids, friends, spouses, etc. You can disagree […]
