The List

Here is my totally obnoxious materialistic Christmas list! Just in case anyone out there is stumped on what to get me :) A new pair of red vans.

17/31 – Sunrise

I’ve been getting up early lately, right now it is so I can get a head start on work.  Though I don’t love waking up to a dark house, I do love seeing the sun come up!  Once I am caught up in my editing, I am planning to continue to get up early to […]
