My favorite thing about fall is finally getting to wear jeans again. Jeans are my favorite item of clothing. It seems like every four to eight years, the fashion gods tell us that a new style is in. Remember...
It's 6:45 AM, and I've just dropped my own kids at their babysitter's house. I signed them both up to go back to in-person school, but they're in the last tier to go back and I returned to my...
