Little Things 5

Foodie Finds, Clouded Skies, and Treasuring Independence I thought I’d kick off the start of my long weekend with my favourite post to write. Although it’s something I don’t do often enough, I love taking a timeout to document some of the minutiae of everyday life. It’s so easy to…
