It literally seems so long ago and I can’t believe how much I’ve grown as a person and a blogger, in the past year! Last year, as I stumbled and navigated the whole “blogging scene”,…

January 4, 2019

Happy 2019 everyone! I feel like every year that I get older the time flies by so much faster! It’s crazy! How many of you make New Year’s Resolutions but forget about them or they become “not that important” as time goes on and the magic of a new year wears off?
