I hope as you all reflect on what 2015 brought you and ponder what 2016 holds for you, may this be your guide:
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before and more importantly, you’re doing something. – Neil Gaiman
Here is to a bold and exciting 2016 to you all!
Happy New Years!
Two years ago today, I watched the movers put the boxes of my life on a moving truck to take me from Holland to Pittsburgh.
There are things I miss about Michigan, and I realize that I will probably always miss them. However, there is so much to like about Pittsburgh and today I am sharing my top ten things!

I am sad that it was not unanimous and sadder still at some of the things that were said by the four dissenters – namely Justices Scalia and Thomas. It is apparent that even appointment to the highest court in the land does not preclude one from being a complete and total idiot.
Bravo to Justice Kennedy for the closing paragraph of his opinion which I believe are the sweetest words I have read in a very long time.
Yes indeed, Gentle Reader, love indeed wins.
“Beware the ides of March.” William Shakespeare
