Let’s be real…

  This blog post is one that is SUPER different to all the other ones I have ever posted, but something that, for some unknown reason, I feel compelled to write. So here it is, a post inspired by the above photo, recent developments I’ve made in my life, conversations with friends, and books that I have read.

In the end, this made the days turn into months between writing a post. So here this post is. A post about being raw, authentic, brave, concise, and most importantly, simple. For what I have learnt in the past year is to be content in the small and basic things of life. I love splashing around in puddles or saying ‘wow’ when I drive towards … Continue reading I made a pizza today
