As you can see from the picture, she is very full of life! I wonder where she gets that from! Harper at 6 Weeks: Loves bathtime. Loves to smile. Loves to eat. Loves The Isley Brothers.

Business & Pleasure: How to Date an Entrepreneur

First things first, it ain’t for everybody. It takes a real special type of person to date a dreamer. Although the title says entrepreneur, I believe it really starts with a dreamer. If you’re lucky, you will catch them before their entrepreneurial journey begins–that’s even more special.
