Saturday Confession: So Freaking Hard

It’s been a long time. November was all about your thankful posts. They were so plentiful they kept coming in December, along with book reviews. I haven’t had to pen an original thought here in awhile! So, it doesn’t surprise me I need to start the new year with a bang. I mean, it’s not every day you see me write “freaking,” right? It’s not a pretty word. Probably not…
