Oh what a hectic week it's been! Over the last few days, I did a little whirlwind trip out of town to Orlando, Indianapolis, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. I will be unpacking what I did there for you all over the next couple of weeks.
As I type this week's update, I am sitting in an airport in Orlando, Florida. I am waiting a bit longer than expected for my flight to board due to heavy storms that are passing through the area.
