It snuck up on me. I’d been hearing its name since childhood, but we’d never been formally introduced. Now this: Lyz-Stephanie, meet Fine Lines. Fml.

There was also that time I … Continue reading Fine Lines, Not the Fine Art Kind

Well, things got worse after I hit publish on that post. Here’s the lowdown. Because I’d like to offer you all downloadable content and because I’m developing some courses (that I’m freaking excited about), I decided … Continue reading Sigh, Technology.
That’s right, I’m doing some behind the scenes work on iwannabealady, and it’s all techy and making me feel equally like a genius and a dummy. But I’m putting on my hard hat and going for it.

Let’s travel back to a few days ago… The sun is shining in the courtyard atrium. The restaurant, serving typical American fair, is bright and quiet.
