Happy Friday.

On the one hand I can’t believe we’re almost at Thanksgiving, and of course on the other hand, how is time moving so slow???

Watching The Crown on Netflix this week was a welcome distraction, but I should’ve paced myself, as we’re already done with it.

Anything else worth watching these days? Need some new shows…badly!
