Is Beyoncé Glorifying Motherhood?
Why honesty is EVERYTHING.
I wrote this post yesterday but ironically my day was so bad, I went to bed early and didn't get around to posting. I can laugh about it now as today is most definitely a new and much brighter day, but yesterday, yesterday sucked BIG TIME.
