Authors Note: This is a guest post by friend, LaRonda Schrock.

LaRonda describes herself as ordinary. She likes good coffee, August sunsets and, well, Instagram. She also love to laugh, to create, to sing. She believes in big dreams and splits her time between an office job designing kitchens, and waiting tables at a local diner.
