Talkin Turkey for #SmallSuccess


Originally, we weren’t going to do Small Success Thursday this week. Because, you know, MAJOR HOLIDAY AND LOTS OF STRESS. (At least for some people. Or so I thought.) As it turns out, people wanted to do Small Successes this week. They asked for it. I need it too. For all the usual reasons. With stuffing on […]
