Are you feeling as restless as we are? I know I’ve got itchy feet that can’t wait to be out in the world. I’ve got tingly arms that can’t wait to hug my friends. I’ve got a cooped up brain that is really HECKIN’ SICK of working from home. However, I know that what I am doing is important not just for me, but for so many people in my community.
So, while we are all together in this staying inside project, let’s at least keep entertained!
