THIS. so many friends/family who just want to give up on us with frustration... please don't. each morning we wake up and either feel like a failure, or hope not to be one that day. we're broken. we can't just fix ourselves, but sometimes it's better, and some stuff does help. we disappoint so often. we wish we weren't a failure, over & over. we drive people away, but that's the last thing we need. sometimes, just hold our hands. sometimes, just wipe away the tears. sometimes, just listen. we love you. don't give up on us. not yet. #mentalillness #dontgiveup

Through Aging, The Bitter and The Sweet
I want the one who knows he wants me. The one who sees beauty in imagining me as an old woman at his side, my withered hand entwined with his and his heart still excitedly skipping a beat, as I turn to kiss his age-worn cheek...
I want the one who wants all of me, young and old, fit and fading, an enduring love from the one who will stay with me during both the bitter and the sweet...
Ella Henderson, "Yours":

Excellent place to stay. This was my first time at a Homewood Suites, and it was a positive experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the free breakfast was very good, the WiFi was excellent, and the room was clean and comfortable. The bed and pillows were AWESOME!

While traveling for work, we searched for Italian restaurants and from the reviews, it sounded like we should try it. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice...very upscale. Unfortunately, for us, we were assigned a terrible waiter. He never checked on us...he never really spoke to us at all after taking our order, other than try to sell us dessert. He walked by us several times...and ignored us. He took away my soup bowl, and didn't engage with us at all. And this wasn't because it was busy...it appeared to be a slow night. We were going to order dessert, but chose not to due to the poor service. We would go again, but I would definitely make sure we didn't get that waiter.

We stopped in here one night after dinner, for coffee and dessert, and to do some work. The counter worker was pleasant and friendly, and made the visit enjoyable. The drinks were prepared correctly. The only downside is that it seemed that they packed up all the dessert food too early. It wasn't on display, but they offered what was available when I asked.

It was my first time traveling to the West Coast, and this chain was highly recommended as being excellent and affordable. That is certainly true! The food was very good and the service was quick. I had the double cheeseburger with fries, and it was great. The strawberry shake was okay...but I've had better.
