🏆 Quotes That Inspire Us:

“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self-love deficit.”―Eartha Kitt


📖 Word Of The Week:

Cajole – to deceive by flattery.

❔ Did You Know:

Did you know the filling in Kit Kats is made from damaged Kit Kats?
The folks at the Kit Kat factory sure know how to recycle! Whenever a Kit Kat bar is somehow made imperfect during production like air bubbles or some other issue, the chocolate bar isn’t thrown out. Instead, they are ground up into a fine paste and turned into a filling that’s then incorporated back into the production process to create new Kit Kat bars! 🍫
