One Day This Place Will Seem Like Home

Went over to Kevin’s house to check the mail and feed Stripe. Was pleasantly surprised to find that Epes truck sitting in the driveway and to find Kevin at home. He had come by to take a shower and nap before hitting the road again. I am so proud of my apartment, but feel a […]
