(this photo might be boring but it's representative to bear with me!) i'm taking a minute to take stock, it's good to do that sometimes. i'm sitting in my own classroom with my dog preparing for the year ahead whilst my husband is off doing what he loves somewhere in spain. all really is ok! life can easily leave you disillusioned, i get that, i've been there a million times. but it's full of goodness if you are willing to open your eyes that little bit wider. take stock, acknowledge life's hardships but work to find its magnificences!
