WHAT’S THE ONE SKILL EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE? How to cook

tired of living in the frigid Northeast, so I packed my car and drove to West Palm Beach, Florida. I found an apartment and a job as a conference center manager with Hilton Hotels Corporation. I lived there for ten years and met so many amazing friends, including my husband!
