Taking a break from talking about the woes of a broken foot. My fur baby turned 3 on Saturday (March 10th)! How could I not devote a celebration to this sweet face? (Also, prepare for more pictures. I'm that dog mom who has a whole Facebook album dedicated to my dog. And I'm not sorry.) … Continue reading Dixie turns 3!
I'd be lying if I said I'm not struggling. I've been trying so hard to put on a good face for everyone. For my coworkers, for my family, for my dance studio. But I'm crumbling on the inside. I'm so tired of this boot. I'm tired of not being able to freely move my foot … Continue reading Purpose.
