Summer is a little over a month away, the Farmer’s Almanac says it’s supposed to arrive June 20th. Depending on where you live though, it may feel like it’s already here!

It could have been that perhaps she just wasn’t carrying herself in the most confident way. It could have been that … Continue reading
