Before I left for Europe, I made a list of the ten things that I thought might be important regarding my trip. Here's how that worked out for me: 1.)  I called my cell phone carrier and made sure my phone would work in Europe, had them activate it for inter...

Story
Tagline
I just want to be better than I was yesterday.
Introduction
I make things over at www.loveheylola.com. I rant and rave about things over at www.loveandlime.com. I own a little tavern called "Blue" with my husband, and we work there all of the time. We have zero children and 5 dogs. Sometimes we foster dogs. I also volunteer with dogs. We really, really like dogs. Really.
Bragging rights
Self employed. It's one of the greatest things I've ever done.
