Well friends, after a long and unintentional hiatus, I’m happy to say that this blog is back!  And, the break had a little something to do with a big life change.  If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you might not know that I’m expecting my first baby on December 8th!  With all the excitement, shift in focus, and changes in my life, I had to put posting on the back burner.  I’m an anxious person in general so for me {Read More}
