Friday Feelz

Thursday morning, I popped open my facebook feed and saw my grandpa.  And I outwardly commented that he was my grandpa.  My brother is in the restaurant business and does an amazing job connecting things to non-profits.  I saw my grandpa because he decided to use his image for a veteran’s day fundraiser he is…

Migraine

I don’t get them often, but Sunday night through Monday night, I had a horrible migraine. It was funny because all day Sunday – after I returned from my 3-hr drive, I had people commenting – asking if I was OK.  “Oh yeah” I would say because I felt fine.  Little congested – small headache…
