I am a real, true life DIY’er….I mean, I have cut my own hair….definitely dyed it and bleached it.  I’ve built furniture (most of it I would consider a DIY fail #stilltryingthough). I’v given myself manicures and pedicures. I’ve tiled floors and walls and painted….oh have I painted. I’ve waxed my own legs (ouch). I’ve…

The funny thing about time is that it never stops…it keeps going.  Second after second, minute after minute, hour after hour.. Yet, all we have is now, thats it! We can regret over the past and plan for the future but all we have is right now. Sometimes time seems to fly…like when I’m watching…
