Unexpected Luxuries (or why I didn’t get all my goals completed last year)

A year ago things like diamonds, private jets and fancy cars would have topped the list when I thought of luxury.  Taking incredible vacations and having endless funds and not ever having to work anymore would have also been considered.  Certainly, the act of setting and completing goals wouldn’t have even crossed my mind.  It’s funny how […]

Life Loofah’s Lost Months (aka That Time I Had a Baby)

I birthed a baby y’all!  Wahoo!
