20 Awesome Things in 2020

Proportion
Categories: Blog

I know 2020 has had some downright awful things happen. I honestly feel like I have PTSD from being cooped up with my 4 year old whilst simultaneously working. I’m definitely a glass half full kind of girl so I know that I got off pretty lightly. This blog is totally off the topic of partnerships, just like the popular ‘And finally,’ segment of our newsletter and it has a ton of links. Grab yourself a drink, settle in and start feeling warm and joyful inside.  Enjoy.
