Bucket List: Preparing For My Meditation Day

One of my Things-To-Do-Before-30 Bucket List items includes spending an entire day meditating. I knew while typing it into that fateful blog post that this would be one of my bigger challenges. In fact, it would probably take as much practice and prep as my 5K run goal. Little did I know how out of… Continue reading Bucket List: Preparing For My Meditation Day

I should start off these reviews by saying that I’m one of those readers who gets immersed in just about any book, so that’s rarely a problem for me. This was no different, and I mostly enjoyed the characters and the… Continue reading Review: Everything You Want Me To Be, by Mindy Mejia (Spoiler-free)
