Things of Note:
Not much news since last week. Had a book club meetup- good times. Our microwave died and we had to go buy a new one- ugh. Watched half of the Superbowl and then stopped because we were both bored- meh. I played around with my Silhouette Cameo some more, though, and have something in the works I’m super excited to share with you guys. It’ll be hitting my business blog next week, and I think you all will love it. I love it. Stay tuned.
