TOO MUCH FUN NOT TO WRITE ABOUT IT! Hope everyone had a fantastic week, wherever you were. We headed to Sacred Grounds on Wednesday.

Spring Breakin’

SPRING BREAK! Stop 1: Almond.Chai.Tea. Didn’t even make it outta town for this one. This is my zillionth post about my love for Gray Owl Coffee. OKC–>TX Texas was unusually cold!

Hi, Friends! Did you make it to the New Year? 2017! Hope it’s the best yet.
