taking the night off

I’m ba-aaaccckk! Two weeks in a row of blogging – and I’m excited that, even after several years on this blog, this post will mark a new first: the first time writing a post from my phone rather than the computer. Tonight, I spent the entire evening curled up in blankets on my couch. And […]

4 months!!!! That is how long (exactly to the day) it has been since I have written anything on my poor, neglected blog. I feel like I am not the same teacher or person I was when I last wrote in November of 2016 (a different year, even!). The past four months have been bursting […]
