2020 Covid Escape (Girls only edition)

What a year 2020 has been. No need for any recaps. We are all aware of what it’s been like over the last 9 months, I haven’t written in a while. At least I haven’t managed to finish a post and actually press “publish.” It’s like having everything to say, wanting, and needing to say…

Charlotte

I decided to pick a place on the map that I hadn’t visited and just go there for the weekend. I’d driven through North Carolina and had several layovers there, but I’d never really experienced the city. That is, until this past weekend. Let me just say that I am happy that I did and…
