Wellness Fridays

Wellness Fridays

It’s Wellness Friday… and I’m totally not well. If you heard my cough from outside my office yesterday, you would assume that there was a 200lb dog ready to tear you apart if you entered. BUT – it’s just me. Sexy analogy, right?

Life Lately

Every once in awhile, I want to share a bunch of random things but I never know how to organize it properly! So, I’ve opted not to. Sometimes, not everything calls for a dedicated post  – I guess this is similar to what Lauren does over at The Skinny Confidential where she shares mini-delites… but far less organized. Like it? Let me know in the comments. Here we go!Continue Reading
