A Post on Wellness

  I’m feeling like a little bit of a hypocrite over here, and as you would expect my natural inclination is to share. As the train slowly rolls towards my 40th birthday I am excited beyond words. I can honestly say that I think each year gets better and better. As a highly anxious child… read more
