What to do while you wait

I feel like we are all waiting on something. Maybe it’s a college, a husband, a baby, a house or a new business venture to take off.

7 prompts to start journaling

One of my favorite products in the shop is our “A Guide to” Journal. The funny things is, I don’t think I’ve ever really share WHY I love it so much. The short version?
