A Juicy Week

As I shared in a recent post, I took advantage of being home from work for a couple of weeks and did a juice cleanse over the holiday season. While I shared some thoughts mid-cleanse, I thought I’d bring some more juice-inspired thoughts now that I’m done. I only craved subconsciously Funny …
