Watercolor quotes

don't half ass anything

First posted these on Instagram, and I hope to do similar things maybe even weekly in 2015. There will likely be a mix of aspiration thrown in with some snark, because as it turns out, that’s really what people like. Isn’t it? Would love to include your favorite quotes… do share in the comments!

Not that I have a whole […]

Monday Musings

This photo was taken on my iPhone yesterday on my due date. No, I am not sad, I just look that way when I don’t smile. Actually we are all really happy right now.
