Happy Tuesday. I have a confession to make. I am a cheater. I am cheating right now. I am cheating on Second Cup with Starbucks!!! Sometimes it's all about location, location, location. Haha. I spent the afternoon taking care of something that I have been procrastinating for a long time. About 10 years to be … Continue reading Fighting The Comfort Zone
Evening everybody. I know it's been a few days since my last entry. The last couple of days have been eventful to say the least.
