Who Are You REALLY Judging?

September 12th, 2013 by Laura Longley

I have noticed over the past several months how judgmental I am of others. Not verbally, but in my mind. I know that whenever I’m judging someone else, it really is about me, but this hasn’t reduced my judging. In fact, recently it seems to have escalated, so it’s really been “in my face,” but…

June 7th, 2012 by Laura Longley

On the second day of my Olympic Peninsula adventure, I decided to go to Cape Flattery. Cape Flattery is the most northwest point of the continental United States. I’d been to Key West which is the most southern point, so it seemed kind of fun to go to the most northwest point. Not to mention…
