The Difference Design Makes

So, I’m not going to start in and tell you that looks don’t matter, but I’m also not going to tell you that looks are everything.  Because neither is true.  I feel like, and maybe you do too, I’m in this weird place in the middle where I don’t love the way that I look, […]
