(no longer) uninspired….

It’s been a while. I needed to reboot, for many many reasons. I’m feeling better. (Thank you, The Headspace Show on Netflix for being the pleasant surprise along my journey.) I challenged myself today….I’m making myself write, even though I don’t feel like saying much. Like any good habit, the more you let it slide,Continue reading “(no longer) uninspired….”

That I’m getting the “Pastry Chef” award tomorrow, for getting through the week without burning my buns. 3.
