Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

A woman who did her job so well she reached the ultimate goal. Unbelievable. Bridget is right as usual they are dissapesring women. Put that tweet back up and I'll mortage my house and buy a semiload of cookies
