Gratitude Gems: No More Shoveling

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life!

Wayward Goals

Wayward Goals

Over the course of this year, I’ve set out to accomplish a lot of goals.  Some of those goals are even lists in amongst themselves, and so the list really is quite lengthy.  As I near my 32nd birthday, I’ve been considering how best to approach completing as many as possible on that list, and […]
