Coming Home: What I Learned

I’m back! Christmas was amazing, and I appreciated being with my family so much more after four months away from them. Skype is great, but it’s just not as good as the real thing (as opposed to Tofurky…yum!). I’ve been in hibernation mode for the last few days, but I’ve managed to crank out a … Continue reading
