It's hard to stay positive sometimes, especially when it's 1:00 a.m. on a Thursday and you're contemplating how your brain can remember & recite every lyric to "Look At Me Now" by Chris Brown, but can't possibly retain the lines for the speech you have to give in 7 hours.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.
