Weekend Reading / 4

Hello! I know Friday is over for most of you, but I wanted to get something up for you before the week officially ends. The last time I posted was last week and the last time I posted consistently - e.g. two times a week - was a while ago. 

A lot has been going on in the last two weeks. First of all, I turned 25! πŸŽ‰ I truly am feeling blessed and excited to reach this milestone in my life. But with milestones comes fear and anxiety and that's pretty much where I'm at right now. I know it's okay to be afraid, but I also know it's not okay to let your fears consume your life. So i've been taking the last two weeks to practice calming my mind and rebalancing my life. Below are my favorite reads of the week - I hope you enjoy! - Jessika
