blast from the past

Back in early 2011, I had just started a new job the previous November; I had come from a tough situation where I was very unhappy, followed by six months of unemployment, and now I was just a few months in. As part of the sales support team, I was included in our annual sales…

side-by-side: queen of swords

March was a very busy month, so it’s fitting that the first side-by-side I’ve gotten to catch up with had to be March. My boyfriend and I made a swift decision to jump on a new lease so a lot of things had to go into action really quickly. (Quick editor’s note — I did…

side-by-side: three of wands
