Coffee Shop Hop

Hello there! Do you just love to find the coziest coffee shops to work in; do what you do? It’s my favorite thing to do when I have projects to work on. I find myself getting distracted at home with chores, social media, and just procrastination type things to keep me from doing what I’m […]
