Date Night with the Foo Fighters

Last Monday I voiced how busy I expected my week to be (and I was right), mentioning that K and I were headed to the Foo Fighters concert on Tuesday night.

It makes me think about these people on their wedding day... I'm sure they were swimming in love and joy and gratefulness and celebration. How did it ever end up here,… Continue reading Today I am Simply Grateful.
