Along with the insanely copious amounts of reading I have to do each week for my classes in college, I figured I'd try and share with ya'll some of my favorite reads of the week.

t's the last couple days of 2017 and so that means it's time to reflect and make resolutions! Anddd this also means eventually giving up some of these resolutions half way through the year...we've all been guilty of this, but I really do want to make a change for the better.

But a couple of things have fallen by the way side as I've entered the bustling years of my 20's; my mental health, managing my stress, sleep schedules, and I definitely don’t drink enough water.
I wanted to visit somewhere that would let me discover something new, while enjoying a calm and serene environment to reduce my anxiety. Colorado did that for me these past 5 days. As soon as we landed in the western state, I felt different--1 mile above sea level.
