The ramblings of a Software QA Engineer, mother to twins, and friend to all.

Welcome to my blog! I can't wait to share all that I have learned with you. Life is too short to be voiceless and too precious to not enjoy. Hopefully we can share our wisdom with each other and lift ourselves up in the process.

My son finished his first Harry Potter book this week and as an avid Potterhead, I was extremely proud. Naturally, it took me to the time when I read my first Harry Potter book and how it transported me to the world of magic, muggles, and mandrakes. The magic in Harry...
