Lots Of TRAVELER Stuffage Going On!


I want to apologize for Tuesday’s post falling off the map – I had a tidbit from TRAVELER posted that WordPress decided to eat for some reason, leaving me only a title and a blank page.

I pick at least ten random people I interact with in a day and tell them how good they look or how good they are at their job or just how much I admire them.

And you know the funny thing? I feel so good after doing all this, I find myself doing a lot more of it the rest of the year, too. Continue reading
