My Husband’s Eulogy

I want to share my husband’s eulogy with all of you because I want everybody to know what an amazing husband, father and friend he was to so many. He truly made me a better person and I am so grateful to him for his love, support and belief in me. I was truly blessed to have a man love me like he did.

Fan Gear for the Curvy Girl

There is nothing more frustrating than feeling forgotten by the clothing industry. Curvy girls are the forgotten women of the fashion world. It’s like clothing designers completely ignored this group of women when they were designing their clothing. What’s even more frustrating is searching high and low for a simple top that represents your favorite sports team.
