On Attitude and Gratitude

Hey loves, It seems like my posts are getting fewer and farther between but I have not forgotten about you -- not in the least!

The half-hour feature follows Jeff, Lauren, and Lloyd in their journey of recovery and maintaining a healthy life despite the diagnosis of... Continue Reading →
