Let’s put baby down for a nap. Is he tired? He looks tired. There’s that coffee from this morning I needed. It’s cold. Who am I kidding? I’ll still drink it. Grabbing my infamous “goal digger” journal, my cold coffee, and my favorite ballpoint pen I begin my process. Wait, is that the baby? No, false alarm. –Raven Guion April 2018
