Fives and Threes…

As the time to leave to Italy draws near [40 days left to be exact] I have been prepping -- and by prepping I mean attempting to find a good flight. Well, the other day as I was about to hop on my laptop to search for flights, I looked down at my phone and … Continue reading Fives and Threes…

Just Wondering

By Trina Otero My sister and I have driven through a few towns in Arizona on our way to the Grand Canyon that literally takes like 10 seconds to pass through. The sight of these small, humble towns causes me to wonder what life is like here. Namaste, T.O.
