You see, life is like an intricate pattern and at particular points… Continue reading Borrowed Thoughts: Fitness
I just finished The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name is Jennifer Love Hewitt (JLH) and I’m a Loveaholic. I have to say, it was actually really good. I thought her book was insightful and honest.
