I LOST IT!

I lost it!!!!! I could not sleep and it was hard to think of anything else. My mind was spinning out of control. I lost my mind over something so insignificant, yet felt so important. As I packed for my end-of-the year hiatus to the beach, I could not find my favorite bikini (in the Read More
