And I was slightly tipsy on red wine. Waiting in the cold. And … More The Ghost of Exes Past: How to Deal When You Run into an Ex
How is it already March 1st?! Did February even happen? I really don’t understand where the month went… and where the year is going. Okay, that was a bit dramatic – it is only March.

So, I just got back from vacation. Well, technically I’ve been back since Sunday night, but who’s really keeping track? #me It’s actually felt like forever that I’ve been back at work.
