Doin' it.

Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.

Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.

For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.

Be back later!
