  • Prepped and ready for Lent

    These past few weeks I have been diligently preparing for Lent.
    How, you ask?

    Even though it’s only early March and I have several or five pairs of white pants in my closet, they are all Capri-length and these are ankle-length, which is more suited to this time of year, or so I am telling myself.
