The Art of Letting Go

I've never been good at letting go of things. I don't mean silly grudges or gripes. I always have an easy time of letting those go. I mean tangible things. Things that are comfortable to me. Things that I adore and hold meaning.  I'll never be the person that hops on a plane and starts… Continue reading The Art of Letting Go

How to Naturally Kick Seasonal Affective Disorder

Well, it's official. Regardless of our Instagram photos of sunsets on the beach in early Fall captioned, "Summer isn't over until I say it is!", Summer is O V E R.

Well, hello strangers! I have to admit, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my blog this Summer.

Tips For Making a Lifestyle Change
