How a girl that loved love for others but a cynic for herself finds her soulmate

Dear Fear 

I’m sorry your five star treatment in my mind is coming to an abrupt end. I used to be your dutiful host, as a doting mother to a child. I used to give heed to your counsel I used to stop dead in my tracks to appease your continuous chatter. No more of that. Even…

Cafe Javas – A case for Brand Management

So, the saying goes, “a dog is man’s best friend.” I think the person that came up with that adage clearly lacked an appetite for food. In my world, food is my best friend. Along with a few other items which are irrelevant at the moment. There is nothing like great food. It is such…
