Time.

Why can’t I just have more time? I ask myself this question a little too often.  And it seems like I still can’t find time, even when I make the effort.  I wake up earlier. I go to bed a little later. I make my to do lists…and yet, I run out of time. Most […]

Anyone that follows my blog and knows me personally is aware of the craziness that is my life. I write these blogs to remind myself of what was going through my head during […]
