Hi! If you’re on this page, you are probably new to this blog. I’m thrilled you’re here!
I’d love for you to get to know me and my story, but no one has the time to sort through the 200+ posts I’ve written, right? So here, I have selected a few of my favorite posts so we can skip right on to the best stuff!
Get cozy and grab some coffee (or wine if that’s your thing), and let’s get to know each other! Afterwards, I’d love for you to introduce yourself so that I can stalk your blog (in a totally non-creepy way) as well. :)
