I have recently fully admitted I love hearing myself talk. This fact probably points to why I picked the career I did. :) It may sound self-consumed but, hey, at least I can admit it! So what does a person who feels they may have some important things to share with the world do... Start a blog of course. So here we are.

  2. Hi Sarah, it’s so nice to put a face to a name and blog. I too, am a transplant. Born (1/19) in the Philippines, Spanish/Scot by ancestry, American by choice. I don’t have a blog and have been avoiding FB. Who knows, that might happen someday, but not To-Day. Love your blog. You give me some of my first giggles of the day :))
