What’s new in your world? Inspired by our recent foray into “local park as personal backyard,” we nabbed a sun-shield from Amazon. Hoping to use it this weekend to extend our visits to the beach or park without baking in the sun (or getting in low-key fights with strangers over the public umbrellas, lol). Thanks for stopping by today! While you’re here, check out a few links…
