There comes a time in every blog’s life where it needs a little refresh…ok let’s be real… There comes a time in all of our lives where WE need a little refresh.  I need a refresh!  Maybe it’s the political climate, maybe it’s in the stars, but I need something else.  Something that inspires me, challenges me, even scares the hell out of me.
