Monday Motivation: New week, New beginnings

I don't know if you have ever woken up and the first thing you thought of was- oh crap, I have work today again. And for a few minutes, you moan on the bed, toss and turn, curse the fact that you have to get off the comfort of your blanket and go to work,… Continue reading Monday Motivation: New week, New beginnings

It's so bad that I already have a favorite, simply from reading the series quotes. Her name's Amelia. If we were having coffee, I'd see your raised… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #14
