Pen for your thoughts?
After breakfast this morning, the husband saw me scrolling through my newsfeed and asked, “what did you do before your smartphone?” I laughed and kept quiet. Not because I didn’t have an answer (I usually always have an answer), I was trying to give him some peace and quiet as he went about his morningContinue reading “Pen for your thoughts?”
