Inspired by my time spent at home with friends and friends who feel like family, I’m keeping this Music Monday column in the family (keep reading and you’ll see who I featured).
The last few weeks have been pretty action packed on my end which has caused me to be a bit absent on WRG?. After accepting a new full time Social Media Strategist position (that I’m super psyched about) that involved paperwork and a border visit to update the ol’ work permit, I left for a 10 day vacation back home to the U S of A.
My American excursion began in my small country Connecticut hometown. After almost a week there, I went to my other hometown of NYC for a few days and then a spent weekend by the beach in the Hamptons, Long Island.
