Unfortunately, that means I’ve seen some pretty rough seasons, but I’ve seen a few great ones, too! I’ve seen Sporting win an MLS cup, the Royals […]Read More Do You Feel Lucky?
I am coming to terms with the fact that I’m not as prolific a crafter as I used to be. And sure, I used to have fewer responsibilities taking up my time.
