Friday favorites: 5 things about Irma

favorites? i dunno about that. it has been a rough week here in Atlanta. not to say my first world problems are anything in comparison to the people who really experienced the brunt of this hurricane in Florida (including one set of parents and several college friends) or Harvey in Texas.  here at my homestead…

a Mother’s Day not-to-do list
