Well, let me tell you….

Too often we roll out of bed at the last minute. The kids are up asking for breakfast, the dog needs to be let out and you are already running late. This is all before you have even had your first sip of coffee. Your day is already filled with stress and anxiety and it’s not even 7:30 am. No thank you!
