Take the Hand

Have you ever fallen on your face?   Like literally? I have. Actually, I have fallen on my face many times (I’m not the most coordinated 😉) However, just the other day I fell really hard, right on my face. I was out trying to be a cool sporty mom (which I am not). Pretending that... Continue Reading →
