La Sagrada Familia, #CrossEqualsLove

In light of Easter weekend, I thought I would share some of the photos from Barcelona, specifically the La Sagrada Familia. “The Holy Family” is an epic church that has been in the works since 1882 (yes, it’s still not finished).

Twenty Twelve Resolutions… who are we kidding?

Are you one of those people who say ‘new year, new me’ each year? Make a lovely resolutions list just to break them before the month is over? I’m not. I entered the new year with ‘new year, same me’ attitude. Then I realized that was stupid. Why would I want to be the same person? ... Read More
