Receiving a heavy dose of vitamin D at my fave Sunday hangout, enjoying a glass of wine and reading Braving The Wilderness again. I like to re-read books, particularly self-helpy, philosophy-ish kinds of books. I’ve read some books 3 or 4 times. We are often drawn to these types of books in moments of difficultyContinue reading “Snapshot”

Mostly Sonny
