The big stuff…

How much I love and appreciate my family and friends.

The realization of how much I could be affecting my client’s lives.

The realization of how much my clients are affecting my life.

Trying to figure out what I REALLY want to do with my life.

My attempt at trying to find a level of compassion and understanding with each person I meet.


The small stuff…

I really want to cut my hair.

I really don’t want to clean the house.

I wonder what I should make for dinner?

Could I blog about what I decide to make for dinner?

We should just go out to eat. IMG_7422

The big and small stuff… 

These mini tortes.

Big big flavor hidden in a small little package.

They are so rich and fudgy that one is definitely plenty to satisfy a sweet craving without packing on tons of calories!
