Twinkle Twinkle

Did you know?

The Spring To-Do List

Spring is officially here! I’m obsessed with Spring because it finally allows me to wear floral print {everything} without needing an explanation.   It’s also the time of season that I realize stuffing my face with 3 breakfast tacos every Sunday isn’t working out well for my body. {The shorts are out and the jiggle can’t […]
