    Sunday night.  In general, a time to reflect back on the lackadaisical hours of the weekend passed, savoring the sweet sentiments of get-togethers gone by, friends + family time so deliciously savored, or even just the emptiness of no plans at all.  But Monday has to come eventually.  Another week must begin again, in hopes that the two-day liberation looming… Read More
