I’ve been lagging a lot the past few months on the blog.

With the summer months (and my newish job) it’s been difficult dedicating time to write. I’ve been blogging for over a year and I’ve realized that I don’t necessarily like writing, but I LOVE having written. It’s time for me to get back to writing. Continue reading
