May 2016 Favorites

May was a somewhat turbulent month for me emotionally… I finally stopped posting on Sweet Violet Bride – the blog that consumed all of my time and energy for the last four years but wasn’t turning a profit as I’d hoped. As an entrepreneur it can be so hard to know when to end something. I […] Read more…
