Until then, here’s another week of my ‘Friday Five.’ This week I’m focusing on the five songs I enjoy running to (right now, at least). Here we go (in no particular …

Friday Five: Things I’m loving right now

I’m still trying to sort through this whole blog thing but I’m trying. I’ve found that themes help, but I’d eventually like to get to a point where I just write. Soon enough. In the meantime, I’ve decided that each Friday I’m going to do a top five list of some sort. It could be …
