Me, Myself, and The Best Daily CBD

When I was younger I’d keep a diary of my shenanigans, daydreams, and ramblings. Lately, I have been reminiscing about the good old days. Yes, I love being a working mom. I love my job. I love my kids. But I also miss the days of being young, single, and sort of carefree—sort of, because I

After speaking to my therapist, I came to the understanding that on top of my responsibilities and
