I did a little Facebook stalking (that’s what you would do, too, right?) and realized we had worked together for a year back when I was still teaching. It turns out that […]

This weekend’s cooler weather reminded me that we’re very quickly nearing the end of summer. It goes too fast, doesn’t it? I’m sure that Francesca and Kevin are hoping that time slows down for them this week – they are both school teachers and as much as they love their jobs, we all know that […]
