Mindset Reset: Midwestern Alfredo

Part 2: Mindset.

Eat That Croissant

Do you ever do something that just makes you feel free?  You know those moments where for a mere second you don’t have a care in the world. I think as adults we tend to forget the importance of letting go.     For example, I like to open my windows of my minivan and play the music loudly.  I …
