Dear 2017: I wanna be BIG.

Somewhere around Thanksgiving week of 2016, I had a very dawning realization as I was planning out my Christmas list of “wishes” to give to my husband. I want to be big. I want to be strong, and big. Well, bigger. Bigger than I currently am. I want to put on one of those super […]
