Head in the Clouds

For the past 3-4 weeks I have been firmly rooted in detail and day-to-day issues that I haven’t allowed myself to look up and daydream. I am doing that today!

Friday Reads – Pollen Edition

Two things on a pollen related note: We learned that my oldest daughter has basic pollen and mold allergies this week. Pollen levels have been pretty high in the Richmond area lately. That makes for an unhappy little girl. I guess we’ll help the good people at Claritin put their kids through college now… In professional […]
