fitme Journal: Accountability accountability athome family Jun 30, 2021

I'm home from Nashville.  My boys who are 10 and 12 came with my husband Josh to get me from the airport. That means they really missed me.

My daughter Georgia, who is 2, actually ran to me when I got home.   I missed them a lot.

To say I was tired from travel would be a huge...
