Currently—the December edition

– Posted in: featured

I feel as though I share one of these a month, but as it turns out, I haven’t written a "Currently" post since October. I love getting-to-know-you lifestyle blog posts the most, and they tend to require relatively few brain cells. I think we could all use a little break, especially around the holidays, eh? [...]

A musical chronology of events
