Tweet I have had to wear lots of different hats in my life – the daughter hat, the sister hat, the friend hat, the single, unattached hat, the worker hat, the carefree hat, the wife hat… you get the picture. I’ve worn innumerable hats for a long time; some are occasionally easier to wear than […]

Tweet The party was in full swing. The food table that stood against the wall on the right-hand side of the room was adorned with a red and white checked tablecloth and was laden with trays of spaghetti with huge meatballs, buffalo wings, soft, perfectly-fluffy mashed potatoes and bowls of vegetables and assorted toppings for […]
