Blocks, blocks and more blocks! Sometimes I feel like a block maker, and that's not a bad thing, just a fun observation, particularly today! Be sure to watch my video as that is where the block madness is happening. And I have some food for thought on creating habits.

It does not need to be daily and she encourages that it does not need to be serious like exercising or eating healthy. It... Continue reading
