Let’s try this again. Weekend plans..

Several times this week I tried blogging from my phone only for my wordpress app to have failures uploading. Usually it saves and I try again but this week none saved. I was too irritated to try reposting but I’m going to this time. Happy weekend!!!

It’s odd in some ways but the quirky elements are fun. It’s a great breath of fresh air to the typical “all white everything”that we’ve been seeing lately.
