2019 Goals

2019 Goals

To be honest, I am not a huge fan of “New Year’s resolutions.”  I’m sure we all have high hopes to accomplish certain things in our lives, but I don’t want or need the added pressure that can accompany resolutions.  I prefer to re-evaluate things at the new year and set reasonable goals.  Here’s what I’ve […]

BOOK REVIEW: COMING UP FOR AIR (HUNDRED OAKS SERIES) BY MIRANDA KENNEALLY
