Currently I'm, the November Edition

Currently I'm...loving fall!!

This fall has been full of lessons learned, open hearts and positive attitudes around here.

You are what you allow yourself to be has sort of been my outlook. Things happen for a reason, no matter how horrible they may be on the surface, and when you come to the realization that there is a lesson in ever experience, and choose to lead with an open heart, great things are bound to happen.
