I love trivia and learning new things, so I tend to read far and wide. The following is a list of 25 Fast Facts About Women Around the World. Some are quirky, some serious, and others are just downright depressing. I tried to offer a balance of each, and hope that there’s something to make […]


Have you ever felt that you bust your ass taking care of your kids, the house, the shopping, the children’s activities, school fund raising, the bills, the budgeting and more, yet somehow your efforts go unnoticed?
