Do You Need to Slow Down?

How to Take a Digital Break

Even when you don’t have a Kit Kat in sight, breaks are good for every soul. Especially the digital kind. I was a bit quiet here last month, and for good reason. Holidays, heat, and a pregnancy that’s kicking my butt made me one less than chipper mama-to-be. And I’m okay with that. I’m a […]
