Two friends and I met for lunch this morning to enjoy some time together and catch up on life events. As best as we can remember, we last saw each other in May or maybe even April. We had a lot to talk about over lunch and lingered well after Frappuccino's were finished. During our … Continue reading What Have You Been Doing?
Sunday Brunch, Relaxed
I had this Sunday brunch inspiration while driving home from early church. Remember to find time to relax and enjoy life; it’s too short to miss out on moments of peace and happiness!
Please Wait. I’m Defragmenting.
