  1. I have in fact made a decision in my life but then didn’t realize how much it was going to change my life until later. I actually had quite of those moments in my career. One of them was taking a management position at a lower rate of pay. I took it because I wanted the experience, but wow what an eye opener… later I realized how much I would take away from that and how much of it I channel now into the current job I have, which I loveC):ONGRATS Katie on the awesome new releases you have both this month and next month!!! Got them on my wishlist for sure:)
