Kitchen Yoga

Several weeks ago I started doing some yoga stretches at night. It's been something I really enjoy and I haven't missed a night since starting this new hobby.

I’m Happy My Mom Plan Failed…Here’s Why

It's no shock if you've been following along for a while or if you know me...I like organization. I like things in their place, events planned down to the minute and tidy surroundings. It's just a part of my life that brought either joy or anxiety… ...Until I failed. You see, I listened to everyone's… Continue reading I’m Happy My Mom Plan Failed…Here’s Why
