🚨 I have a gift for you!! 🚨 As we all are, I am working to create the best version of myself! A couple of months ago I joined ClassPass thanks to the invitation from Kate Michael. Since then I have lost 25lbs and gotten to try over a dozen different yoga studios, boutique gyms, spas, salons, and even gotten acupuncture! All of this and more for one low price - you get sooo much value. I am now able to gift a FREE month for you!! Visit my link for further details 🎁 https://classpass.com/refer/2DOIV4N524

We are working on a GIANT mural for our front window display with a talented local artist. I want to channel all the strength and beauty from the mural artists we have seen in Nashville, Austin and in the DMV.

What quote motivates you? Our QBD tag line is Bee Fierce. Bee Bold. Bee You. I had also thought about the Gandhi “Bee the change you want to see in the world.” However that awesome quote is on a local mural here in town. So I’m looking to my friends for some Monday motivation and inspiration. Please feel free to screenshot your favorite murals or drop your favorite quotes. 🎨
