Clockwise from top left: Poor Murphy just wasn’t feeling Sunday morning and stayed in bed for hours. His life is so hard. On Friday night, Mal and I […]

    Hi, friends! 😎 After breakfast this morning, I headed to Starbucks to get some freelance work done. I don’t usually work in coffee shops (mostly because I’m cheap and don’t want to spend money), but I switched it up today because I really needed to get away from my usual distractions (i.e. Murphy, Twitter, gchat) […]
