Click. Read. Love. 10.20.23
Happy Friday. We’re having a lazy day today. I have a sinus infection which I finally got meds for and Marin has some sort of cold that hopefully doesn’t get worse. It’s been pretty crazy in town with tourists so we’ve been staying close to home for the most part. There’s tons of great links this week so I hope you enjoy. Take care and have a great weekend.
