There’s no way to sugarcoat it…this week was a doozy. Dave broke his elbow pretty badly on Monday night, and navigating doctor’s offices in pandemic protocol with a three-year-old and a baby in tow has been challenging, to put it lightly.

I’m writing this intro while sitting outside at my favorite coffee shop and it feels SO good. This morning, Dave essentially kicked me out of the house for some alone time–my first time out of the house solo since Azelie was born, and my first time physically into a building (other than church and the […]
