Updates & 4 Things That Grabbed My Attention

It's been a long couple of weeks - lots going on in my full-time job and side work but I love it!

I'm a huge fan of waking up early. It's the perfect time to be selfish and really get my "me-time" in as most of the rest of the city is still sleeping (not to mention, I get to catch the sunrise depending on the time of year).
