Eric and I are were sitting across each other at the table, gazing into each other’s eyes and completing the statement, “How do I love thee, let me count thy ways....” Nah, who does that?

Freedom. What comes to mind when hear or see the word "Freedom?" This week, this word has never hit me so hard on my head. You see, I've been a slave. I have had a stronghold. Oh, I could blame it on my 7-ness on the Enneagram Personality Test or the four letters that I… Continue reading Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
