Smile Wider

Print Friendly

   I notice smiles. It is just a thing I do. I’ve done it all my life. But bigger and better smiles became easier for me to show ever since I was in my last years of being a teenager when I had my first “real” job with benefits and went into a … [Read more...]

Friendly Fact Finding
