2019 Recap…

Since its the last day of 2019, I thought it was a good idea to recap the year. Last year on New Years Eve, I did that in my journal and I enjoyed having to reflect on the past year – the good, the bad, the okay and the funny. I still plan on doing […]

I am a private person. I have a really hard time opening up to others, and letting them get to know me for me. And it usually takes me a while to be able to share my deepest darkest secrets. Not that I have any. So when I created this blog, I had absolutely no […]
