You’re not Perfect, and neither is your Blog

By Kris Windley |

I haven’t written a blog post in 2 weeks, guys. And I know that everyone who is anyone says that I shouldn’t mention that in case you didn’t notice.

I'm a writer, editor, illustrator, teacher, mother of two and enthusiastic cat-belly snuggler.
