Maya Muses: I was on the phone with a friend from Paris who asked me when we were planning on going back, (Patrick and I go back and forth every year to Paris) and I told her this year I didn’t know. “I have several doctor appointments scheduled,” I said…..and then we got to talking […]

If there was one thing I had a lot of while growing up, it was hair! So much of it, that I was constantly getting it thinned out when I was young, but the more I thinned it out, the more it just seemed to grow back in! I know, you can say the same thing about […]

If anyone has noticed the “Bring Sean Home” poster that I put up, it represents a terrifying story for any parent that loses a child. The last time David Goldman saw his son Sean, he thought his son would be returning home in a matter of weeks.
David said goodbye to his wife Bruna, their four […]
