As most of the world lets up I'm still staying in. It's crazy to think that just yesterday we were living lives per usual going to work, spending time with family, attending church services, and shopping. Here we are today living a life we could have never imagined. One where we are encouraged to stay [...]
Most recently I went browsing on Groupon and stumbled upon a great steal. Groupon is known for deals but to me this was a huge steal especially for jewelry. Living in the south I've noticed rocking your monogrammed initials is a big trend. Thanks to Groupon I'm "#trending" as the youngins say. Finally I have [...]
The reality is in these times we are all tuned in virtually. The world wide web has never been so widely used in the history of its time than now.
