Last week, I tried archery for the first time. It’s something I’d want to try for many years, but for some reason I hadn’t. Turns out, I loved it. Pulling back and feeling all that power of the bow, then letting go—Snap! The arrow flies through the air towards the target. There was something incredibly satisfying about the experience.

What makes Valentine's Day special to me is sharing it with the ones I love.On that note, I'd like to share a story that happened to me last week that makes me so grateful for the all people in my life.Last week, I was going through TSA, on my way to Colorado. I took out my laptop, took off my shoes, emptied my pockets and put everything in the bin. I walked through security, collected my things, and, after taking my flight to Denver, I opened up my backpack to pull out my laptop. To my shock, it wasn't there!   In...
