We live in a crazy time right now. There aren’t really even words to express the myriad of emotions I’ve been through in the last five days of mandated social isolation thanks to Coronavirus. {If we’re getting honest I’ve been basically self-isolating since February 28th so I’m getting pretty good at this.}That being said, I’ve […]
