How’s your week going? May has honestly been a blur. I only realized yesterday that Friday is the actual end of the month. How wild? I deleted my Instagram account earlier this month and it feels like I never had Instagram. Life just feels less noisy and my evenings seem to have opened up. I’ll be talking more about why I made that decision in my newsletter. You can subscribe here.
