The Friday I Couldn’t Say, “TGIF”

It was a Friday. April 14th. The world was celebrating “Good Friday”. For me it really wasn’t “good”! My family has always celebrated Good Friday.

4 Things I Love About a New Year

I absolutely LOVE the New Year and all that comes with it: new journal filled with blank pages, new planner ready to be filled, new pens and markers, and new empty, fresh files.
