Friday Letter - March 27, 2015

dear self:  it's been a great week.  little surprises always make my day.  still working on me and trying to delete all negative things out of my life, surrounding myself positive people and positive things that will help me grow.  trying new things is the new me.

I know, I know.
I'm not that person who holds up the line in the store to carefully organize my recipe in my purse before I leave the store - I'm the person who just throws it in my bag and I'm on to the next thing on my to do list.
