Monday Morning Motivation, vol. 5

After a pretty lame week of blog posts that I blame on “lack of time & energy”, this quote couldn’t be more fitting. I need to take the time to do what makes my soul happy – blog, time with friends, reading, sitting at coffee shops…so expect more of that from me! I encourage all
