Taking Stock #004

bed-rest

2015 started off strong, filled with family that I love and a resolution to take things a little slower

Life, in her gloriously magical and mystical ways, has forced me to do so – even though I fight her tooth and nail, because I’m so damn stubborn…

So Taking Stock #004 finds me waiting on results from blood tests, with fingers crossed that the doctors are wrong and that Life will cut me a break, because I really am a good girl.
