Here is the story (from Wikipedia "One legend about the creation of brownies is that of Bertha Palmer, a prominent Chicago socialite whose husband owned the Palmer Hous
A new beginning is starting and I know it will be great, but endings are exhausting and painful. Two more weeks of craziness and I will be unemployed. I cannot wait until it is over... I am really looking forward to the next step!

Today is Thanksgiving and, while it is good to remember how fortunate I am and all that I have to be thankful for Everday, today I want to make a special effort. It is so easy to get caught up in what I don’t have and what I want that I can forget what I do have.
