Birdie's Happy Place Recommendations

What a tumultuous time our world is facing right now. It’s felt crazy for a long time, but the birth of Covid19 has really just rocked our world. It feels almost pre-apocalyptic out there, with minimal cars on the roads and all the parking lots empty. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve had my […]
