Freedom Friday: The Flu Bug Edition

Hey Good Folks!

ThatKellieGirl has the flu bug! 😦

I’ve been trying to fight it off all week, but it finally shut me down.  That’s ok though.  I just need to relax to get better.

I am shut down this weekend, but I hope you aren’t.  So go catch the 30 Americans exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery before it closes this weekend.

Other than that, I am out! 🙂

Peace, Love and Blessings,
