I am a simple, independent woman that loves to find joy in the small things like a "how was your day?" from a friend, a cup of coffee, the smell of soil when it rains, a hug from my son, and watching a feel-good movie to name a few. I also love writing content that one could relate to easily. If you like what you read, kindly share it on your social media platforms. Go for it!!
