I tell you, we are. We can’t go through it and out the other side without finding ways to laugh at […]

The Merry Mind

Nicole grew up in Alabama as a self-professed Type A: perfectionist, responsible, conscientious and total overachiever with straight As and APAs (where you sit college papers in high school). She went on to get a Masters in journalism and now she’s found out there is a way to research and write and get paid well […]
