I have a confession: I thoroughly enjoy self-quarantine. To be clear, I’ve been enjoying the heck out of self-quarantine. Except for the occasional grocery store (read: Home Depot) run and walks with my dog, I’ve been locked in the house and freaking loving it. I’m very, very, very, very lucky and blessed to be employed […]

This week, we experienced our first major condo renovation blip. Let me set the scene: we’re in the final stretch. Movers come next week.

My most favorite pupper turned two last week, and I’m still all in my feels about it.
