And I have loved every bit of it  But it the time has come for me to expand my space. It is time for change and growth.... It is time for to move. In the spring, I will moving to a new and improved space.

I am so caught up in my day to day, as the planner, the nurturer , the cheerleader, the lover that I honestly couldn't tell you the last time that someone did (or could ) do any of these things for me. I tend to naturally take this role because its partially just who I am. I care for my family, I was a manager at my previous jobs for many years, I pick the restaurants, the destinations for vacation.... This is who I am . So when I sat back and thought it abo
