    Monday Morning Motivation

    Going to start this weekly entry for Mondays. I’m going to call it Monday morning motivation. Not sure if that’s the right title but I’m going to try to get up in advance to write a full article about my weekly motivations and goals. So far, I failed this week since I am writing this article in the evening and publishing it on a Tuesday. Anywho, this week I am focused on four things: coffee, picnics, homes, and books. One of these things does not belong and that would be coffee. I’m not a coffee fanatic but I do like the aroma and lately I have been needing it to…

During Hay Fever season, I prefer to stay away from any dairy products as dairy causes more mucus to be produced. If I must use any dairy for…
