2017 was a tough year for me. Saying goodbye to my love bug, sweet dog Scarlett, was really hard emotionally but also financially as we spent a lot of money trying to save her. I dipped into my stockpile of diabetes supplies as I didn’t have the best health insurance. And my husband and I struggled to find a good work/life balance, one drawback to having your own business. I was also sick a lot, especially towards the end of the year. We constantly felt like we were drowning but at the same time we did a LOT of fun things.
