Ah, a new year. A fresh start. A new me. I feel like that’s something that everyone says, but I just love the feeling of a new year. A new opportunity. A reset. For 2019, I’m not really looking for the whole “new me” thing. Instead, I’m focusing on expanding the parts of myself that… Read More Welcome 2019!
