Happy New Year everyone! Hopefully, everyone has had a restful, restorative holiday with their families. That's how people describe holidays right? Restful and restorative? I kid.

I've been MIA from blogging and writing. Completely. There have been a lot of transitions happening lately and it has been throwing me off. All of which are incredible and I'm so grateful for, but I'm also trying to figure out my balance.

I was a weird kid. While I played with dolls and things like a normal child, I had also created a completely alternate persona, Tiffany Sportslender. At first, Tiffany owned a sporting goods shop where she would rent or lend sports equipment (get it...sports-lender, it was in her name she had to do this.)
