Today, I was selfish.

Today, I was selfish: I spent over two hours on my mat instead of writing some very long overdue blog posts. As a basket of clean laundry waited to be folded, I sat outside on my patio and watched my dog happily run around in the sunshine. I left my phone buried at the bottom of my purse for the majority of the day, … Read More Today, I was selfish.

Sunday Breakfast: Sweet Potato Toast
