No Boobs at Breakfast

There is a time a place for your breast to be exposed. The time is when you are not at a business conference while people are eating. I understand your child needs to eat.  In fact, I fed my children the same way. The difference is my boob was not hanging out at breakfast or at any meal. It is both inappropriate and unprofessional to expose yourself in a public place during a business event. The place for feeding your child is anywhere with proper cover. I believe your breasts are a personal ...

Those People

http://www.kellyalisonphotography.com

    This year I am making an effort to not be one of "those people." You know the people that point their finger at you and offer unwanted advice. I am learning to worry about myself and let what I think take the lead over others. I am learning to judge others less and help them more. I am working on becoming a better person. I am actively seeking opportunities to help others. I am looking for resolutions to problems instead of complaining. I am not offering advice unless asked and I am ...
