Even though it’s almost always summer in south Florida, sometimes I crave big bowls of warm comfort food. And lately I’ve been feeling super fatigued – a few nights ago, Bryan said to me, “Mandy, you need to stop working so much.” And today when he left for work he said, “please do something fun today.”
