Crushing the Curls…

Crushing The Curls Monday (April 27) – Gawd it’s dark at 4:50am. After a weekend filled with lots of activities and even after what felt like a lot of sleep, the desire to leave my nice warm bed does not exist. It’s been interesting to say the least, after reading the article on The After Myth (talked about in the...

That Wasn’t How it Was Planned

Drop off 1 of 4 Friday (April 24) – Now I’m sure when this was programmed, Tavia was thinking, “the end of April should be warm enough”. Warm enough for what?
