As the end of the year is quickly approaching, today brings me back to my childhood. It’s field day!!! I missed it last year because I was out on maternity leave, but I’m glad to be apart of it this year, despite being under the weather.

If you would've asked me during my freshman year of college if this is where I thought I would be, I would have said no. My life now is not at all how I dreamed it would be. Before anyone says anything, there is a point, but let's start with somethings that I think about… Continue reading This is Not What I Signed Up For
