It’s all too much

How are you doing mamas? I am not well and I will admit it.

Kripalu

If you've been following me, you know I was so nervous to leave my family for the first time in 4 years. I wasn't even leaving for 1 night, but 2! The day I left was extremely hectic- a student destroyed my classroom right when I had to leave to bring Juliana to her preschool… Continue reading Kripalu
