Hey and happy Friday!
Easter is upon us and with it a time for new beginnings. I love taking a moment for introspection. Time to assess where I am, who I am, and where I wish to be. Working on oneself should always be a work in progress. And let’s not kid ourselves, it’s hard. It’s hard to look in the mirror and see who we truly are, warts, successes, and all. Sometimes it’s just as hard to take ownership of it, warts, successes, and all. But with this new beginning, I’m ready for all of it.
I’m also ready for this quiche. Quiche me, please! And happy Easter.
But first, let’s get into this week’s Friday Faves.
