Whew! July flew by – most likely because I spent most of the month planning and celebrating my birthday! It wasn’t a milestone year but I wanted to have fun and make a big deal out of it so I did. There was eating out (Body Ecology was not followed!), shopping and play time in […]

These posts are always the hardest to write but I know how much I appreciate honesty and authenticity from my fellow bloggers so why would I exclude myself? *huge sigh* It’s only Tuesday and I feel like I’ve been through two weeks.
