Posted · 1 Comment

When I was little and sleeping at my grandparents’ house on December 31, my parents would always say the same corny line: “See you next year.” It always struck me because it was only a day. And yet it really was a new year. It felt like so much could change in just one night […]

This morning, I woke from over nine hours of sleep feeling incredibly rested.
