If I Could Turn Back Time

Thirteen years ago, I was a very different person. If I could go back, let’s say 15 years, I honestly don’t think I would change a thing about it. Fifteen years ago I was in college, making really poor choices, doing really dumb things, but I still don’t think I would go back and changeRead more

Attitude of Gratitude

Almond Matcha Milk

I wasn’t feeling too great on Wednesday morning, and everything in me did not want to get out of bed, but I knew that if I didn’t I would just lay in bed all day. Personally, when I’m sick, I only allow myself so much time in my actual bed. For some reason, the longerRead more
