It’s disheartening that this post starts with yet ANOTHER story of a talent show I didn’t win. And, in retrospect, I’m pretty sure that of the many talent shows I participated in, I won none of them. What the hell?! When I was in sixth grade three girlfriends and I decided to lipsync and dance … More Shine.

She and I go back…well since we were babies…but for most of our lives we’ve lived thousands of miles apart. Not convenient for cousins who truly adore each other…as we do…but we make … More Our.
