Blogging Goals #2

So I think I need to set myself some more blogging goals – I wrote this blog post a few months ago and had some great feedback and tips. It took me a lot longer that I thought it would take but I finally feel like I have made a little progress. Here is how…

When days don’t go to plan

A little advice…..
