IKEA - Not even once.
"My name is Melissa and I went to IKEA.” “Hello, Melissa.” At first I didn’t want to do it. I had walked through its

To Women on Father's Day
There really are good men in the world. Men that are respectful and kind; men that have integrity and compassion. I know because I am married to one. He didn’t just appear. He wasn’t the object of a wish on a star. He didn’t fall out of the sky or pop out...

The truth about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
It is not for the
weak. It is not karate,
tae kwan do, or hot yoga.   There is no
choreography or fake fighting during training.   Everyone does not get a medal
and there are no twelve-year old black belts.   You are very literally being challenged physical...
