Growing up, I loved Christmas as a child. I loved how excited I would get at the thought of coming down the stairs and seeing beautifully wrapped presents (of course, Christmas isn’t just about this) but as a child, you don’t often know any different. I remember the hours spent writing down items out of … More Christmas As A Child.

The problem with this way of thinking is I tend to burn out more easily. I become agitated and stressed. Over the past … More My Self-Care Evening.
Not too long ago I took my first (yes, first!) trip to London. I was anxious, nervous, excited and all that type of thing. It was a well overdue trip. The conclusion? IT. WAS. INCREDIBLE!
