Why I Can’t Look At My Wedding Photos

I got married on July 25th, 2015 in Chatham, Ontario. It was a hot summer day with the rain luckily holding off until everyone made it into the reception venue. I married my best friend and my soul mate. It was a beautiful ceremony and we were surrounded by family and friends, some of which…

Who Hasn’t Seen Me Naked By Now

Why I love Technology

Technology. I am a huge fan. It is because of this that our world goes round, with a few other things thrown in there too mind you. It is also because of this that the doctors found out that I didn’t have a stroke. They were able to narrow down my diagnosis using technology to…

It’s Important To Be Positive (Or Is It?)
