My blog was born a few years ago when, driving down the highway with my husband, I pulled my sunglasses out of my bag, put them on, and looked up to see my husband’s horrified reaction. Apparently a stray junior mint had been rolling around the bottom of my purse, wreaking havoc on its contents. Now melted, the mints’ gooey white centers had settled on my sunglasses, creating a Frostybrow that I was ignorant of until my dismayed husband pointed it out to me. He then informed that my mishap with the mints was a metaphor for my life. I don’t think it was a compliment, but I thought it made a pretty good blog title.

Doesn’t make sense? Read here. It will.
