I am sharing this post about slowing down and connecting with family over coffee as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®. All opinions are my own.
I am sure I am not the only one who always feels rushed. No matter what I have going on, it seems like I have 100 other things I also need to be doing so I’m trying do it all at once, quickly. At least once a week, I need to remember to slow down, relax, and enjoy time with loved ones.Read More
