Change Is Coming

Thump thump thump.  From the morning wake up kicks, to the tiny rumbles during our mad afternoons of classes and snacks, to those rippling belly rolls that always seem to happen right as I’m laying down trying to fall asleep, every little bump and thump I feel inside is a reminder that change is coming, […]
