Autumn

YOU walk briskly through the bustling morning streets. Your breath comes in quick short gasps, the cold air burning your lungs and setting them alight like a Christmas tree.

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Gift

LET'S talk about gifts baby! Continuing on my 30-Day Gratitude journey, today is all about the gift of giving (and receiving).

Streetlights flicker, the wind whispering in your ear as you walk down the street. Exposed skin prickles at the cold air and you pick up your pace, hands buried deep in pockets.
