Darlings, these are some crazy times we are living in! While most of us have been forced to slow down in light of COVID-19, we’ve all taken on a lot more whether it be working and homeschooling our kids, or working from home and being on constant ZOOM calls.

Just taking a moment to speak those words out loud reaffirms how important you and your well-being truly are.
