It finally caught up with me, down for the count. It could actually be allergies and exhaustion from the super bloom too?? It's so beautiful out, but with the allergy season that's going to be huge I'm afraid to go outside! So what have I been up to since I haven't been able to blog? … Continue reading Too much road time
