How Do You Find Me Time?

I struggle with finding “me” time. I struggle with the guilt. I really struggle with balancing being a work from home mom and a stay at home mom.  I struggle, especially after Christmas. December is an absolute write off for me. Work is busy, the kids…

Netflix Saved Christmas…
