I’ve never considered myself a runner. Even though I’ve completed my fair share of 5K and 10K races, with one half marathon thrown in for good measure.

How Being Pregnant has Helped my Business

Dogs are the Best Co-Workers, Ever

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my co-workers: Roxie, the office manager. She’s the older of our two dogs and also the more “responsible” one. She brings a sort of calmness to the workday.
