“Don’t Agonize, Organize”

Image via Hello friends and welcome to the end of one of the darkest weeks in American history. I know I was not the only one who spent all of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning tossing and turning in gut-wrenching agony.

2016 Summer To-Do List

I had thought that today was supposed to be the first day of the summer solstice, but google just told me that it was yesterday. Boo. Either way I am always more than eager for summer to take hold and this year with my new change in work schedule (meaning that what I used to work on in my time before and after work each day and all weekend is now my full time job!) I could not be more excited to have a little extra time this summer to regroup on life and get everything in order!
