Three Card Draw – July 29, 2017

I don't think I've ever written about my tarot habit before.  I love tarot cards - not because I think they help me predict the future or because I think I'm psychic, but they help me tap into what I'm really thinking and hoping for.  I'll spend some time writing about my tarot philosophy soon,… Continue reading Three Card Draw – July 29, 2017

Happy Tuesday!  And Tuesdays usually mean that I'm linking up with the Broke and the Bookish for Top 10 Tuesday!
