Hello friends! As you are reading this, I am on Day 3 of my new job, and have successfully not lit anything on fire or spilled anything on anyone important. … I’d consider it a huge success, wouldn’t you? All joking aside, I am loving my new job and all my new co-workers. I’m also loving […]
Hello friends! It’s that lovely time of year again: Girl Scout Cookie Season. Though to be honest, it’s a rather frustrating time of year for me. Growing up, getting my hands on a box (or six) of Samoas was ridiculously easy. I wasn’t a Girl Scout, but I knew plenty of girls who were, and […]
