A lovely day…


…where the grass is always greener, and the desert is always browner. (A disjointed narrative about my southern migration on a quest for sunshine and happiness.) I woke up this morning to rain! RAIN! I can’t remember the last time it rained here. I was thrilled. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Vegas gets […]
