In the fall, I like to make what I call Pantry Chili. I take some ground beef, some spices and whatever I can find in the pantry. Throw it in the crock pot and voila - Pantry Chili! This week's The Ten, is a bit like my Pantry Chili. It's a little of this, a little of that - but when you put it together, it just works. 1- Truly talented professionals focus on bringing out the best in you, not telling you what's wrong with you.

As we are right in the middle of “wedding season,” I thought I would share a poem that is very close to my heart called the Bridesmaid’s Poem. I wrote this poem for my sister’s wedding earlier this year.
