The great date round up

Looking back, it’s no surprise that the first time I tasted the sweet goodness of a medjool date was at Melissa’s house.

Now that I’m avoiding almost all sugar, the occasional date tastes like a very sweet treat.

Prosperity, growth and big time success feel just within reach. I’m feeling hope and joy from so many people these days.
