Bells Will Be Ringing

This past June, I was in North Carolina for a family wedding. Well, they are technically family friends, but I have known the bride basically from birth, so they’re pretty much family. It was a beautiful day, and I decided to take care of a chore that I had been…

Insufficient

Let’s be real… No one is the most proficient at this whole relationship thing. I mean, you might be, and if you are, perhaps you should be writing this series. But whether you are an amazing friend or a sociopath, none of us are doing this perfectly. Cool pep talk,…
