Brooke Notes: Publisher’s Perspective

When December rolls around, I love going through the camera roll on my phone and compiling my “favorite” photo from each month of the year. It’s a great gratitude exercise and if you are like me and don’t have a “best” memory, it’s always fun to look back through the year. I made a point […]
