Sometimes something a little magical happens, and it can turn an entire week around in a snap. It rained this evening.

Spring break. Who’s bright idea was that anyway? In theory, I suppose it’s pretty awesome. But not so much for the parents who get to stay home all week with the kiddos? If you’re in college, hey, more power to you. Go find your way south and have a blast. That was never my idea […]
