Where I’ve Been…

Hey friends, it’s been a while, I know. I should have updated you sooner. But I didn’t. I’m sorry. So here we are, almost 5 months since I shared from my heart to yours. The first couple months of 2020 were challenging for me. Towards the end of 2019, I was uncertain about writing and…
