A Time to FitBit.

Really, it was all the old man’s fault. He was ambling around the edge of the cliff at Weathington Park, offering to take everyone’s picture with their phone. I don’t know if he was doing some sort of undercover operation to plant a tracking device on everyone’s phone or what, but he was quite insistent. […]


Have you ever gotten to that point in your life where you’re so overwhelmed by the number of things that need to change that you’re not sure where to start? I did – a couple of weeks ago. And I started by making a list – “Things I Need to Change” – at 2am. (Because […]
