Book Report: Quick Reviews of What I’ve Been Reading

A Places to Go and Things to Do List

Do you have a bucket list? I have put together lists like these in the past but they felt overwhelming and like too much pressure. Lately, however, I’ve circled back around to this idea and have begun creating a list of things I regularly think and dream about, but in a no pressure kind of […]
