to see or not to see: how to safely visit during lockdown

This quarantine business is hard, y’all. Lent was a bust. (Remember that time right before all this nonsense started when I said I was going to try to be a better person? Yeah right. God can test me all He wants but, mark my words, I failed this one, with flying colors.) Like, I’m probably […]

on the lighter side.

While we did go down to Florida for a funeral, since it was a weekend spent with Anthony’s siblings & parents, obviously there was still fun to be had. Anthony had two free nights worth of points at La Quinta, so we decided right away to stay in a hotel rather than stuff two more […]
