It’s a Great Life If You Decide It Is!

The Blur of Basketball Finals The past month has been quite a trip for the real head coach and myself. It would be easy to sit back and enjoy life, but no, I’d rather jump into life with both feet and experience every day with its fullest benefits. Jennifer and I went to the Division […]
