Right now you should be doing homework, or sleeping…. But, instead you decided to put some goals down on virtual paper. Of course, you want to lose weight, exercise more, eat better… all the standards. That stuff is important to you. But, you know you’ve got some deeper issues to address. In 2015 you turn 30. You wanted to have another baby, become a millionaire, and have your Doctoral degree by the time you turned 30.

Zoey Grace Summerall at 6.5 months

Zoey Grace  Summerall

Miss Zoey Grace, 6.5 months old… she’s determined, has a contagious smile, and she’s the worst sleeper ever!
