I have a confession to make. My very first blog post and I’m already making confessions {le sigh}. Here goes: I have a diary. But don’t worry, it is not like my 15 year old diary about who I was crushing on that week or how my BFF was talking to the guy I liked (face palm). No, no, this is a grown up diary.
