I'm halfway through this month's challenge - 30 days of not spending money on anything other than groceries, gas, and bills. The first 13 days were a success.

Not self-care, which to me is all about long showers, eating good food, getting manicures / pedicures, and taking time each day to just be. Self-Love can be the same thing, but I'm stretching out in order … Continue reading It Wouldn’t Be Called a Challenge if it Were Going to be Easy.
