Books and podcasts and coffee

I had yesterday off and was able to piece together a coffee date with someone who is away from work right now and who I haven’t been able to catch up with in a while. While sipping our lattes, we proceeded to do exactly what we do when we’re at …

Rediscovery

I got some news last week that sent me reeling back to years past and in a good way. The Old 97s are headlining #RnRSEA and I could not be happier! What great news to start the day! pic.twitter.com/RPoPm0q4bn — Carly-Ann Rigby (@carlyrigby) April 25, 2018 As I mentioned yesterday, …

Things we’ll do this month: May
