This year I decided I was going to create very specific outlines of what those “things” would be in hopes that I would actually stick to them throughout the year. For example, read […]

Pennies for Penny

pennies for penny

Often one of the best parts about social media is that you stubble upon things you may otherwise never hear about. I recently came across a website and a family’s heart wrenching story about losing their little girl. When their community came together to support them in such a horrible time it had a huge […]
