“You Sure Do Have a Lot of Clothes”

…says my friend Jenni, who graciously helped me pack and sort them all day! It was worth all the eye rolling (jk Jenni!). Plus some other stuff too.  I’ve known her for over 20 years and was bawling like a baby when she drove away. This leaving thing suuuuuucks 🙁  Had a great dinner at […]
