Do you just start typing? Do you make apologies? Do you tell a tall tale of the amazing adventures you've been on that kept you away? Do you just word vomit and hope for the best?
Let's try a combo of apology, word vomit, and a photo update.
So. Since my last real update was our trip to Chicago let's start say, November of last year? Well that just a comical statement...
November 2016: Wiseacre, Running, OrangeTheory, more Wiseacre.
