| Juicy Details |

While I didn’t think that the Mandarin Hotel in Washington, D.C. would be my writing location for the evening, my job has a funny way of making things exciting. Nevertheless, I am working a bit later than usual and am discreetly multi-tasking to log my #tut30days assignment.

Before ending my exercise for the night, I wanted to take my vision one step further. I downloaded an app called Strides, which is basically a goal tracker for habits. I picked my favorite 10 details and entered them into the app, going easy on myself to start.

I am curious about your habits, and what you do to keep that creative spirit entertained, keep that marital spark alive.What juicy details can you divulge, that may in turn help me reach my fullest potential as a wife, an employee, a kindred soul?
