Slow Sunday

September 27, 2020 day in the life

The site is back. 🥰 I’m dusting off the cobwebs and working on getting this place organized. Organizing is one of my favorite things to do because it always involves minimizing.

I’ll film!” 😂 So she grabbed the old Sony video cam and headed out the door. It made me so happy that I started to cry. Of course! 😭 I didn’t know what she planned on filming but knowing Francesca, I knew it would be fun. And no, she will not be getting an Instagram account. 😁 Her sister,Read More
