Wordless Wednesday {twirl}

be weird.

I bet if I looked back and found any blogs posted during the last week of school, they would contain similar themes… Excitement about the impending summer vacation and the freedom to step back from the scheduled existence we live during the… Read More

it’s a good Friday

March 14th – 18th was Spring Break. Then a few days back to a more normal routine. Then a three-and-a-half day weekend. I’m not going to lie.  When I first saw that this long weekend was right on the heels of Spring… Read More
