Another week, another round of errands, summer camps, freelance, hot days, and a fabulous thunderstorm. That’s kind of it really, life just rolled on this week. Nothing stands out as extra-special, but then again, all the little things ARE extra-special right? With that in mind, I’m looking forward to an average summer weekend full of […]
