Supporting a wonderful Kickstarter. “Tea & Empathy cards can help you name your feelings. They can be used to exchange empathy between partners, with groups of friends, or as a solo self-care practice. They're designed to help everyone feel seen, heard, and understood.” Chip in if you can! They are almost fully funded!
Watching season 4 of Schitt’s Creek on Netflix and still loving the Dan and Patrick storyline. Also watching Dancing with the Stars and of course, DWTS: Juniors! It’s such a wholesome show that is easy watching when I get downtime.
Cooking brussels sprouts with shallots, parmesan, and breadcrumbs. Broil away and enjoy!

Starting my Halloween costume for work. The theme is “Wild West” and I think I’ve nailed down my punny outfit. I’ll report back next month!
