Happy Sunday Friends!
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know what happened to me last week. Although I’m feeling better about what happened, I’m still in shock. All I have to say is it wasn’t my fault. I swear life is always exciting in Megan’s world. Thankfully I’m on vacation this week heading to L.A. for some much needed R&R and Blogfest fun. Are you going? If you are, let’s meet! In true summer fashion, I’m keeping this intro short. Enjoy this edition of The Sunday Skinny. I’ll see you back tomorrow with the deeds on the accident and something delicious of course!
