The Eighth Week of Emmerson

  My dear Miss Emme Loo! This last week was a little more busy as we ran around doing many overdue errands since we finally got paid. Errands equaled a lot more time in the car for you, and you are not a fan!! It can be hit and miss, but in general, you don't… Read more…
