On the blog: I'm talking about "The Big Short," a literary map of the United States, what your desk says about you (freakishly accurate), adult coloring books gone wrong, and a "West Wing" podcast with Will Bailey himself! http://leahsthoughts.com/monday-musings-march-28/
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you celebrate Easter? The photo below describes the extent of my festivities. Sophie is on spring break this week (translation: I get to sleep in). And when …

I have been nothing but pleased with my Hera Hub experience. Not only do I have a very relaxing, yet conducive to work, setting to get things done outside my home office. But I've made so many great contacts. The networking events and workshops alone are worth the price of membership. And Felena is a master connector and will make sure she connects you with someone in some way. Hera Hub is an inspiring and happy place to be -- so glad I'm a part of this amazing group!

We have been taking our daughter to Dr. Eric Dixon for two years (she nearly 4-years-old) and we have had nothing but positive experiences there. My daughter LOVES going to the dentist because of Dr. Dixon, the wonderful hygienists, and staff. I only wish I had that kind of dental care as a child. We are blessed to have found them! -- Leah S.
