Today’s Monday Soundtrack comes to you a little later in the afternoon since we spent the first half of the day flying from Chicago back to DC. In fact, I wrote most of this on the plane!! But I couldn’t post it until we were back home and Chewy was picked up from his pet […]

Happy New Year!!! Today’s Monday soundtrack comes to you on a Tuesday because I wanted to spend the first day of the year reflecting on 2017 (while relaxing on the couch).
