The Best Gift

Disconnect to Reconnect
Do you find yourself scrolling constantly updated pinned interests, crushing gummies and stalking individuals via their feed? If so, you may be addicted to just a few phone apps: Pinterest, Candy Crush and Facebook. I know I was. I would find myself hours upon hours numbed out on my phone. Gosh forbid if I ran […]
