    A Love Letter to Memory Ball

    http://limar.me/216-dte27323-women-seeking-bigger-men.html My Alzheimer’s story may have already been told, you might already know it’s a disease that has affected my mother and grandfather. You may already know it changed my family beyond anything I was prepared for, all before turning 20.

    Brain Healthy Resolutions

    Folks – Congratulations! You’ve officially made it through nearly half-way of your first full week back to work post-holiday festivities. At this time of the year especially, I find myself reflecting on the experiences and lessons learned from the year past and all that we can look forward to in the upcoming year. I like to think of the new year as a blank canvas with much to offer – an abundance of opportunities to learn, love and make memories – and hopefully embark on an adventure or two. The mystery of what will transpire in 2017 is positively exhilarating. One experience that I know I’m already looking forward to…
