Guest Post: The Skunk, Rain, Running, Oh My!

What a weekend!  Thank you guys for all of the birthday love – turning 36 wasn’t too bad!  Really the only bad part was the death of my relatively new iPhone.  I’m still without a phone, so don’t take it personally that I’m ignoring you if you called or texted me on my birthday!  Anyhow, besides… Continue reading Guest Post: The Skunk, Rain, Running, Oh My!
