You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
— Pat Graham

As a fifth generation Texan, I grew up hearing my fair share of sayings, especially from my grandparents.

My Grandmother has always been a wise woman.  But over the years, her words about honey and vinegar have become a mantra of sorts. Much like the bitter and the sweet of life, honey and vinegar both serve noble yet very different purposes. 

This blog is about embracing both to grow: the good and the bad, the sweet and the sour, the joy and sorrow...and catching the occasional "fly" along the way.
