I tried something new today. I turned my morning routine upside down. I'm the poster child of routine-following. I do the same thing everyday at the same times: 9-10 a.m.: wake up. Immediately grab phone and peruse social media 10:30 a.m.: actually get out of bed. Try to write a blog post/watch TV. 11 a.m.:… Continue reading Margherita Chicken & Zucchini
