OOTD: Three-Day Weekend Casual

The tradition every Memorial Day Weekend- for as long as I can remember- consisted of at least one cookout and at least one trip to the beach to “jump start” the Summer season with friends and family.

Like a Boss

Although I’ve never experienced a global pandemic before, I think it goes without saying that in times like these- with social distancing, mandated quarantines and lockdowns- a lot of small businesses take a significant financial hit.
