Before Summer Ends [#HeyYall no.2 #GetGoing]

Hey, y’all! Summer is ending; while I am more than ready for pumpkin-flavored everything, comfy sweaters, being outside without sweating, apple cider, and all of that jazz – I still get a little emotional when I see summer end. Summer, to me, is about freedom.  It’s about body liberation and loving yourself in your swimsuit.  It’s […]
