Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating

This quote becomes more and more true as time goes on!  For those who know me and/or have been following my blog and journey know that I am one for setting and going after goals.  When I was younger, it was all about the goals.  With tennis, it was all about winning the games, becoming […]

When you eat, appreciate every last bite
