  • Inventory

    It’s been a while since I published a post, and it’s not because I’ve been overly busy. I had a lot of time off this summer, and I’m just trying to figure out my goals now that I’ve completed my teaching diploma. I can do a lot of things, and I know a lot of […]

  • Exit PIDP

  • Shine On

    My incredibly awesome sister Shannon Walsh shared Will Smith’s Facebook video Set Your Life on Fire, and tagged all the woman in her life who have fanned her flame to celebrate International Woman’s Day.
