I know you cannot wait to see what little tidbit of joy my mother sent me, but first things first… I cut my hair with my trusty 10″ Kai Fabric Scissors. I know this rates really low on the important things to announce scale, but this was a first for me, and since I cut eight inches off (I’m totally serious) it was a big deal (to me)! Also how fabulous is it that my scissors can be used for so many things?
Next up is this video sent to me by… wait for it… MY MOTHER, of course!! How many of you absolutely LOVE my mother? I know I do. She is the source of such wonderfully funny, silly and just in general, uplifting things that she sends me on a regular basis. So here you go. You can thank my mother. If there was ever a time for some uplifting silliness, it seems to me, this is it. To all my friends on the west coast, I’m thinking of you and wishing you safe.
