About this time last year, something crazy happened to me. I was living in Chicago and had set up a dating profile, because, whatever it was 2015. Let me live.

Exactly 365 days ago I flew into a city wrapped in a blanket of snow on a weekend where the snow came down for days, and I never looked back –that’s a lie. I look back all the time, but I truly am happy I risked it all to move here. NO RAGRETS. Read More
